The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

“It would seem inevitable that we must repudiate one of the two, either Christianity with its love of God and one’s neighbor, or the State with its armies and wars.” – Leo Tolstoy

If the State restricts itself to protecting life, liberty, and property within its own borders, rather than trying to mind everybody else’s business and profit at other nations’ expense, reserving its armies and wars for purposes of defense rather than conquest, there is nothing in this incompatible with Christianity. But such a State can only be the product of decidedly and practically Christian statesmen. Such was the intent of our Founders.
