  • The Supreme Court’s Same-Sex “Marriage” Decision - Grave
           Implications and Needed Responses

    • Authors: Stephen M. Krason
      Abstract: This was one of SCSS President Stephen M. Krason’s “Neither Left nor Right, but Catholic” columns that appeared during 2015 in Crisismagazine.com and The Wanderer and at his blog site (skrason. wordpress.com). It discusses the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark 2015 decision on same-sex “marriage,” Obergefell v. Hodges, and its likely implications for religious liberty, true marriage, and children. He says it is the latest expression of concocted rights under the Court’s “substantive-due-process” doctrine. He suggests ways to respond to the decision politically and legally—by citizens, organizations, and the use of executive power by a sound president in the near future, and by the Church.

  • The True Story—and Tragedy—of Race in America

    • Authors: Stephen M. Krason
      Abstract: This was one of SCSS President Stephen M. Krason’s “Neither Left nor Right, but Catholic” columns that appeared during 2015 in Crisismagazine.com and The Wanderer and at his blog site (skrason.wordpress.com). He makes an assessment, in light of Catholic social teaching, of the race issue in America today. He argues that the typical commentary about it ignores obvious realities, is often driven by ideology and the opportunism of self-appointed racial spokesmen, and ignores serious, deep-seated problems in minority communities with tragic consequences.

  • 1965 - The Dawn of Our Current Age

    • Authors: Stephen M. Krason
      Abstract: This was one of SCSS President Stephen M. Krason’s “Neither Left nor Right, but Catholic” columns that appeared during 2015 in Crisismagazine.com and The Wanderer and at his blog site (skrason.wordpress.com). It discusses the seminal year 1965 (fifty years before the column appeared), when so many of our current social, cultural, and political problems and our difficulties in the Church began to take shape. It discusses the nature of the “new direction” that became evident that year, how crucial trends took shape, and how the developments of that year led to others in the short or long run.

  • SCSS Response to the Draft General Comment on UN Human Rights Council
           Resolution 29/22 on “Protection of the Family”

    • Authors: D. Brian Scarnecchia
      Abstract: This statement was submitted to the UN Human Rights Council by the SCSS and a sister organization, the International Solidarity and Human Rights Institute (headed by SCSS Treasurer D. Brian Scarnecchia of Ave Maria School of Law) in their capacity as NGOs. Scarnecchia drafted the statement, which calls upon the Council to insist on the upholding of true marriage and protection of unborn human life as part of the rights of the family and links them with protecting the environment. It says that “human ecology” must be protected along with physical ecology, that they cannot be separated. It proposes use of the Public Trust Doctrine from Anglo-American common law to do this. It especially deplores the attempt to impose same-sex “marriage” and abortion rights on the Developing World.

  • Money, U.S. Monetary Policy, and Catholic Social Teaching

    • Authors: Alex D. Binder
      Abstract: The Popes have directly and indirectly taught that money ought to serve man and be used for the common good. They have also condemned the idolatry of money and warned those who manage it for society to do so responsibly and according to the principle of subsidiarity. Money is the “life-blood” of the market economy, yet its creation and distribution is widely misunderstood in the United States. The Federal Reserve has less control over the money supply than is commonly thought because of their commitment to provide an elastic currency, and the federal government must maintain monetary sovereignty in order to pursue the goals of full employment and price stability. Though an elastic currency and monetary sovereignty are potentially inconsistent with Catholic teaching, they are not inherently so, as long as those with power act for the good of all.

  • Social Justice and Catholic Social Thought

    • Authors: Fr. Dan Pattee; T.O.R.
      Abstract: This essay examines a revision that took place in the meaning of social justice among commentators on and scholars of papal social teaching from the time of Pope St. John XXIII. The revision occurred under the influence of Marxist ideology over the application of Catholic social thought to questions of reform in society. This essay will argue that there was never any real change in the papal social encyclicals themselves, as evidenced by Blessed Pope Paul VI’s statements in and by the attempt of Pope St. John Paul II to return the meaning of social justice to its original soil of the Gospel and the writings of St. Thomas Aquinas.

  • Drug Courts and Catholic Social Teaching - Challenges for a Retributive
           Age

    • Authors: Alfred D'Anca;Sr. Eileen Fagan; SC
      Abstract: In this retribution-centered age of American criminal justice, with continued high rates of drug offenses, the Drug Treatment Court (DTC) model has emerged as a means of managing the needs of non-violent drug offenders through multidisciplinary teams that include judges, prosecuting and defense attorneys, and treatment providers. Now operative in state and Federal jurisdictions, the model is characterized by a more therapeutic vision of law, an acknowledgment of the drug offender as redeemable, a supportive but accountable relationship between judge and drug offender, and non-adversarial collaboration by court officials and treatment providers. This paper examines relevant principles of Catholic social teaching which tend to affirm the innovative drug treatment court model as a rehabilitative and restorative approach to justice by which both the needs of drug offenders and community safety are addressed. The agreement between Catholic social teaching and the principles underlying drug treatment courts is reflected in the Church’s support for legislation favoring community and faith-based outreach offender programs.

  • Further Thoughts on James V. Schall, S.J.

    • Authors: Marc D. Guerra
      Abstract: James V. Schall is well known for being a learned theorist (and an equally learned practitioner) of so-called Christian Aristotelianism. That Schall affirms the basic compatibility of Christian faith and human reason, then, is not surprising. But the particular way that he affirms this is surprising. Schall regularly speaks of the relation of Christian faith and human reason in terms of the qualified incompleteness of both political philosophy and Christian revelation. The mutual incompleteness of political philosophy and Christian revelation indirectly sheds light on the characteristic error made by contemporary hyper-rationalists, whether they are overt modern rationalists or covert religious rationalists.

  • Meditations on the Kinds of Wisdom Guiding Thomas More and Ivan Ilyitch

    • Authors: Michael A. Scaperlanda
      Abstract: Through the lives and deaths of Thomas More and Ivan Ilyitch, this article explores the consequences of choosing to follow God or to follow man. Although one man is historical and the other fictional, they make a good contrast because they both are prominent lawyers adroit in governmental and judicial affairs. Both wisely understand what modern liberalism rejects, that humans are dependent creatures. More places himself in the hands of God while Ilyitch places himself in the hands of his social betters. More lives a life of joy. Ilyitch lives a life of quiet despair. More can embrace death. Ilyitch cannot embrace his earthly end until at last he sees that even though he wasted his life redemption is still possible.

  • Walker Percy and the American Pursuit of Happiness

    • Authors: Ryan Barilleaux
      Abstract: Walker Percy was an American Catholic and Southern writer best known for novels about the place and purpose of the individual in the universe, but two of his novels (Love in the Ruins, 1971, and The Thanatos Syndrome, 1987) were more explicitly political in nature. Percy’s reflections on the state of the American regime informed several essays as well as his politically-oriented novels. He was concerned about the condition to which the United States had declined in the late twentieth century, and examined how the nation’s pursuit of the wrong kind of happiness contributed to its decline and endangered its future. Percy understood that true happiness lay in virtue and in faith, and he laid considerable blame for America’s cultural decline on its embrace of scientific materialism. While his novels are not didactic, they urge a return to faith as the key to saving American society.

  • Obergefell, Locke, and the Changing Definition of Marriage

    • Authors: Caleb Henry
      Abstract: Was the Obergefell decision a refutation or an extension of Lockean political thought? I summarize three perspectives on Locke and show how these interpretations can elucidate the Obergefell opinions. I then argue that the dissenters have the better Lockean argument. I conclude by explaining why Catholics should view Obergefell through Lockean lenses. Locke shows us how Obergefell will lead to a direct attack on familial moral education. However, Locke can also give us tools to fight in the public square for familial moral education.

  • James Schall on Being Open to "What Is"

    • Authors: Peter Augustine Lawler
      Abstract: The most prolific and genuinely provocative writer in America today is James Schall. Schall tells that the Catholic Church is today about the sole source of a genuinely reasonable—meaning genuinely realistic—view of “what is.” That’s why Schall contends that political science is not a natural science; our lives as social or relational animals living together in community can’t really be understood realistically without seeing the whole truth about who each of us is.

  • Common Core or Christian Core?

    • Authors: Steven Schultz
      Abstract: The Common Core State Standards are an initiative to adopt a uniform set of kindergarten through 12th-grade mathematics and English educational standards throughout the United States.  Many Christian schools are also voluntarily adopting Common Core standards.  This article examines whether such a practice is truly in the best interest of students and parents by considering the compatibility of Common Core with a classical Christian philosophy of education.  This article begins with an analysis of Common Core standards to identify the foundational philosophy of education inherent in Common Core.  This philosophy of education is then contrasted with the classical Christian philosophy of education to discern whether Common Core is compatible with the Christian core that should be at the heart of every Christian school.

  • In Celebration of Fr. Schall

    • Authors: Hadley Arkes
      Abstract: For James Schall, revelation becomes open to us, on the most important questions that revelation can address, when it is opened by people who “study politics,” as Samuel Johnson had it. For Plato, the best city, the best political order, was spun out in the world of speech. It is not a place we expect to inhabit. But Plato had Socrates say at the end of the Republic that, whether this City exists anywhere or not, it is the only city in which the thoughtful man would wish to take part. But even so, as Schall says, revelation alerts us to the possibility that our true home will really be elsewhere.

  • Remarks on Listening To and Reading the Three Short Papers of Peter
           Augustine Lawler, Marc Guerra, and Hadley Arkes

    • Authors: James V. Schall; S.J.
      Abstract: What has concerned me most is the coherence of political philosophy in the light of what is not political philosophy. Reality, what is, is always richer than our knowledge of it. If we are to understand political things, we have to understand more than political things—things like history, science, literature, practical living, common sense, philosophy itself, and yes, the terms and content of revelation.

  • Orestes Brownson’s Quarrel with American Individualism

    • Authors: William H. De Soto
      Abstract: Orestes Brownson is regarded as one of the most important contributors to Catholic social thought that the United States has ever produced. Although he is famous for changing his views during the course of his intellectual career, he in fact consistently defended several core principles. His defense of community and social obligation never wavered. He called for greater social equality as a young socialist and Transcendentalist; as a mature Catholic he urged his readers to take seriously Jesus’s command that they love one another. Although Brownson wrote in the nineteenth century, his views remain relevant in the second decade of the twenty-first century. His work challenges the narcissism, individualism, and selfishness that plague our world today. In contrast to our culture’s tendency to focus on the individual, Brownson calls for us to think about our communities. He asks us to rise above our sinful natures.
