Quote of the day

From the Future of Freedom Foundation, today's quote:

A zoo is a welfare economy, and the zoo animals are privileged — and enslaved — animals.
- R.J. Rushdoony

Rousas John Rushdoony was a Calvinist philosopher, historian, and theologian and is widely credited as the father of Christian Reconstructionism and an inspiration for the modern Christian homeschool movement.

While most leading denominational Christians in New Zealand are very much on the political left; Major Roberts of the Salvation Army et al. Rushdoony understands that the only legitimate form of 'collective responsibility' is voluntary.

I used to read his 'Journal of Christian Reconstruction' many years ago. He has made a significant contribution in helping Christians (like me) understand the legitimate role of the State from a Biblical perspective.

Nice to see him still quoted.

Many animals live long in Zoos than in the wild. But they are not free.

" "the heresy of democracy has since then worked havoc in church and state ... Christianity and democracy are inevitably enemies."

Rushdoony would hang "most leading denominational Christians"
