I love this straight up admission of wanting theocracy, “We should seek to use these values to enforce our order and our orthodoxy, not pretend that they could ever be neutral.”

Such talk—of politics as war and enmity—is thoroughly alien to French, I think, because he believes that the institutions of a technocratic market society are neutral zones that should, in theory, accommodate both traditional Christianity and the libertine ways and paganized ideology of the other side. Even if the latter—that is, the libertine and the pagan—predominate in elite institutions, French figures, then at least the former, traditional Christians, should be granted spaces in which to practice and preach what they sincerely believe.

Well, it doesn’t work out that way, and it hasn’t been working out that way for a long time—as French well knows, since he has spent a considerable part of his career admirably and passionately advocating for Christians coercively squeezed out of the public square. In that time, he—we—have won discrete victories, but the overall balance of forces has tilted inexorably away from us, and I think that French-ian model bears some of the blame.
This appears to be the core of his argument, which really boils down to "we can't impose our values because we are oppressed by the progressives." I suppose we could label him a 'Christian Justice Warrior'. (CJW?)

Justin Amash is a Democrat now
This matters because it means Amash is more like the typical Democrat who vehemently opposes a host of Trump’s policies. He is vocally opposed to the dramatic increase in government spending that Trump has sanctioned. He regularly tweets his opposition to Trump’s tariffs and trade policies.

Lol this is why a couple months ago I was like "dudes, it's first things, duuuuudes" but no one seemed familiar? (not no one)

I think that was actually when we were talking about the original column that kicked this whole thing off

Is this guy John? The article sure as hell reads like the republitarians on H&R. When the hell did the GOP become the party that officially supports big government spending and tariffs? [I'm not talking about what they DO, I'm talking about the policies they give lip service to.]

We welcome allies who oppose dehumanizing attempts at “liberation” such as pornography, “designer babies,” wombs for rent, and the severing of the link between sex and gender.
Ah, so severing the link between sex and gender is dehumanizing; REAL freedom means the freedom to conform to society's expectations of you whether you want to or not.

A buddy recently tried to get me to send an essay there. I said no.

(The essay was on STEM vs librul artz, not Catholic conservatism. Not sure why he thought First Things was the right venue.)

Yeah but it's really weird when you get there and it turns out that they're an REO Speedeagon cover band.

Btw best local punk band name I've seen after Little Fyodor and Babushka is REO Speeddealer.
