Are not Distributists fanatical defenders of property rights against the state?
Are not Distributists defenders of the right to bear arms and the right to stockpile weapons?
Are not Distributists defenders of the right to farm the land and raise cattle?
Are not Distributist men of action?
Is not Cliven Bundy a defender of property rights against the state?
Is not Cliven Bundy a defender of the right to bear arms and the right to stockpile weapons?
Is not Cliven Bundy a defender of the right to farm the land and raise cattle?
Is not Cliven Bundy a man of action?
So why is Mark Shea trying to distance himself from the actions of a fellow Distributist?
Good rule of thumb: If something or somebody triggers an enormous wave of hysterical right wing support invoking George Washington and Thomas Jefferson and painting its critics as supporters of Hitler, Stalin and Mao while comparing grazing fees to abortion, you can take it to the bank that it is utter folly to get on that bandwagon. That any Catholic could fall for this hysteria for one moment is an indictment of the quality of formation in the American Church. If you are a Catholic who is, in any way, making excuses for these terrorists, go to confession. And if you are a prolifer enthusing over this guy, I call you a hypocrite to your face.
