I’ve been reading How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization. It’s a fascinating book that makes a very compelling argument for why Catholic-Christianity is responsible for the moral, ethical, and legal basis for Western civilization.
When the author compares some element of Western civilization with the way the pagan world operated in Christ’s time, I am often struck by how similar the pagan world was to the way the Left wants our world to become.
I recommend this book, even if you’re no fan of Catholicism. All of Christianity was Catholic until 1517, by which time Western civilization was well established.
Even where they reject certain Catholic doctrines, most Protestants take Catholic values for granted. This is very evident in the Constitution, which was written by Protestants and which the Left wants to radically alter.
This book can give you a good insight into the political and cultural battles we face today and make it even more clear that it’s not so much a political and cultural battle as it is a spiritual one.
