Hey, everybody, it’s been a while since I posted, but thanks for the responses.
Sterling, I think I know what you mean – I was raised in the Southern Baptist tradition and I used to be as hardcore of a neocon as they come, along with just about everyone else in the churches I attended. So yes, it is exceedingly rare to find a liberty-oriented person in the Baptist tradition… or at least in the Southern Baptist churches I was raised in and attended until I was received into the Orthodox Church.
And drphil, you may have already done so, but I highly recommend looking into Professor Woods’ writing on the Catholic Church. He is a devout Catholic and has written some wonderful stuff as to why Catholics can indeed be libertarians in addition to his work on how the Catholic Church has contributed to the cause of liberty.
