From Darwinian Conservatism: ‘ The Evolution of Christian Schools in a Liberal Society ‘

Full post here.

Worth a read:

‘On this blog, I have defended a Darwinian classical liberalism in which social order arises best through a largely spontaneous evolution in which individuals are free to pursue the satisfaction of their natural desires.  Adam Smith described this as the “natural system of liberty,” which allows “every man to pursue his own interest his own way, upon the liberal plan of equality, liberty, and justice.” ‘

and he finishes with:

‘Here is a clear illustration of Christian liberalism.  Christians can fervently affirm the beliefs and practices of Biblical Christianity, and they can organize their lives–in their homes, their churches, and their schools–to manifest this Christian way of being.  But they can do this without demeaning the lives of those individuals who disagree, without violating religious liberty and toleration, and yet still firmly and clearly affirming their faith. 

Christian liberals can thus be graciously unapologetic.’
