Might Distributists like Francis Catholic Ahlquist & his collaborator Mark Shea tend to be Seamless Garment Catholics who "'cover' for Catholic politicians who supported legalized abortion"?
Biden: Pope Says He Should Keep Receiving Communion
As Research Director for the Acton Institute Dr. Samuel Gregg put it:
"The 'seamless garment'... provide[d] 'cover' for Catholic politicians who supported legalized abortion."
(Catholic World Report, "The Consistent - and not so Seamless - Ethic of Life," August 13, 2015)
Scholar Timothy Gordon in his book "Catholic Republic," which makes the case that many of America's founding principles are based on Catholic philosophical teachings, thinks distributism appears to "probably" be moral consequentialism" which attempts "to make right out of wrong." He writes:
"[D]istributist authors admit... 'they were advocating the redistribution of the means of production...'"
"... At it's very best, distributism equals natural economy- capitalism- under a renewed, moral, republican form... At its worst (and most probable), it is the old beast: collectivism."
(Catholic Republic: Why America will Perish without Rome," by Timothy Gordon, Pages 163, 164-167)
Distributists tend to be Francis Seamless Garment liberal Catholics in sheep's clothing who claim to be anti-abortion, but often support abortion candidates.
They claim to be traditionalists and conservatives, but are actually liberals who equate redistributistic economic issues with the genocide of abortion thus many of them such as distributist Dale Ahlquist's collaborator Mark Shea promote abortionist political agendas and are Never Trumpers."
Distributist Shea once called Trump supporters Ever Trumpers. Does that mean that distributist Francis Catholics can be called Ever Franciser?
May the apostle of common sense pray for us living in this world of insanity! And I'll close with a quote of Chesterton's that has always been among my favorites.
“The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”?
I think that is what Chesterton would have said in reply to the flawed reasoning based on Amoris Laetitia that justifies the return to Communion of those living in adultery. [https://lesfemmes-thetruth.blogspot.com/2018/02/chesterton-dale-ahlquist-and-civil-war.html]
