"Large number of Catholics - especially practicing Catholics - have gravitated to the conservative side of American politics since the 1970s. This is often because of the Democratic Party's position on controversial social issues. The sales of books written by American Catholics such as Michael Novak and Robert Sirico who are strong proponents of the free market economy indicate that such Catholics are looking for, and inspired to buy, books that make a Catholic case for economic freedom, free markets, and limited government"--

Throughout its history the Catholic Church has taken positions on many subjects that are in one sense political, but in another sense are primarily moral, such as contraception, homosexuality, and divorce. One such issue, abortion, has split not only the United States, but Catholics as well. Catholics had to confront these issues within the framework of a democratic society that had no official religion. Abortion, Religious Freedom, and Catholic Politics is a study of opposing American Catholic approaches to abortion, especially in terms of laws and government policies. After the ruling of Roe vs. Wade, many pro-life advocates no longer felt their sentiments and moral code aligned with Democrats. For the first time, Catholics, as an entire group, became involved in U.S. politics. Abortion became one of the principal points of division in American Catholicism: a widening split between liberal Catholic Democrats who sought to minimize the issue and other Catholics, many of them politically liberal, whose pro-life commitments caused them to support Republicans. James Hitchcock discusses the 2016 presidential campaign and how it altered an already changed political landscape. He also examines the Affordable Care Act, LGBT rights, and the questions they raise about religious liberty.

Why is this book tittled The Boston Tea Party; PHASE II? The actual Boston Tea Party was because of the Tea Act of 1773. This Act actually made the tea cheaper, but it was creating a government controled monopoly. The Colonists saw this monopoly as a way to control all items brought into the Colonies. This would also so give the British Parliment complete and total control over their lives. The saying "no taxation without representation" came out of this movement. So the Boston Tea Party Happened. Our country is at that same point, this Administration does not listen to the people, We the people see this as taxation without representation, they even turn off their phones. The colonists Tea Act is our Health Care Bill. thus the name of the book, The Boston Tea Party; PHASE II.

In the decade since the financial crisis of 2008, governments around the world have struggled to develop strategies to stabilize precarious markets, encourage growth, and combat mounting wealth inequality. In the United States, the recovery from that crisis has exacerbated the fears of the working and middle classes and pitted those classes against the wealthy. Although we participate every day in economic life as workers, consumers, employers, or activists, we often experience the economy as a mysterious force that we cannot control, or fully understand. Matthew Shadle argues that Catholics ought to be able to draw on their faith to help navigate and make sense of economic life, but too often the effort to get ahead or just stay afloat drowns out faith's appeal. Interrupting Capitalism proposes a new strategy for Christian economic discipleship. Rather than engage the two theological poles of continuity and rupture, Christians should interrupt capitalism: neither whole-heartedly endorsing global capitalism nor seeking to dismantle it. This means "breaking into" the economy, embracing those aspects that enhance human well-being while transforming the market in a spirit of solidarity. Shadle argues that all three of the dominant theological approaches dealing with economic life-the progressive, neoconservative, and liberationist-are theologies of continuity. A fourth approach, a communitarian one, he believes, can best embody the strategy of interrupting capitalism. The Catholic tradition, including its tradition of social teaching, provides a cultural structure that, along with their own social context, conditions how Catholics think about and engage in economic activity. Drawing on the resources of the tradition, theologians reflect on this activity, giving it a theoretical justification and offering correctives. Both the experience of ordinary Catholics and the work of theologians feed into new articulations of Catholic social teaching. Offering an overview of Catholic thought since the Second World War, Shadle begins with the experience of Catholics in Western Europe at mid-century, moving to Latin America and the United States in the 1970s and 80s, and then concluding with the phenomenon of globalization.

Finally buttressed with Natures bounty, fortified with Natures gifts, testifying to Natures truth we must be ready to take a leap in faith. The hardest leap of faith to believe in; is a leap of faith in each other, in the individual. In the end the only way a government of the Individuals, by the Individuals for the Individual can long endure on the face of the Earth. Faith in God alone cannot suffice for such a government to work. It is the most necessary prerequisite for such a government to exist. But it cannot retain it cannot nurture it because the government is a covenant a pact made between God and the individual. If we lose faith in the individual we break the sacred pact. Being granted so many gifts the last act is in our own hands we are the City on the Hill when we believe we are the City on the Hill. When we act the part we are the Light of the world and the Inspiration to the World. It is really simple, if enough individuals carry out this leap of faith, a new critical mass will be reached, and a miracle will turn the tide in our affairs once more and we like the patriots of old will once again fulfill our own self-actualization process and bequeath to our posterity the ability and responsibility to reach their own.

Our American government began with a revolutionary idea. Alexis de Tocqueville called the evolutionary process of revolution wherein society evolves and institutes sweeping changes in government. The government of the United States was the most unique creation of human history since it was an actual collaboration between Nature and the Individual, for Nature and the Individual, with the express purpose of facilitating and improving that relationship. It took all of humanitys history, its successes and failures along with Natures tools of inspiration and evolution for the conception to manifest itself, until a government of the Individuals, by the Individuals, for the Individual, had come into being. The individual citizens of the United Colonies were living in a state of grace with nature and the society they made up created a clear mirror image of themselves, including internal equilibriums intended to preserve their self actualization process. A few years later, another revolution took place, one de Tocqueville would call the political kind. This revolution occurred in France, it would be the precursor for many other modern revolutions wherein one Centralized Collective Authority replaces another and where government attempts to impose its will on society. Today, in America this spiritual battle continues. On one side is the Tea Party Patriots carrying on the spiritual tradition of our Founders and Framers, on the other side those who look toward the archaic Eurocentric and Asiatic concepts of an all powerful Centralized Collective Authority.

Overcoming its tumultuous beginnings, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston has matured into a distinguished and active voice for West Virginians. One of the most unique aspects of the diocese’s 160-year history is the diversity of the landscape, culture, ethnicity, and dialect that characterizes the state’s identity. From Wheeling to Beckley and Martinsburg to Parkersburg, the story of our diocese comes from the individuals who established and nurtured the Catholic faith in their local communities. Without generations of the dedicated faithful, the diocese would not have thrived. Through a variety of images, this book tells the story of the generations that continued striving to give a voice to this unique Catholic community. In addition, professional researchers and local readers alike will find this volume’s rare perspective of history through the lived experience of the subjects refreshing.
