Join LCI Founder/Chairman Norman Horn, Board members Doug Stuart and Jason Rink, and Executive Director Nick Gausling as each week they explore, debate, and analyze the issues that are directly relevant to the intersection of Christianity and liberty. Always thoughtful, frequently controversial, and never boring (trust us), it is our hope and prayer that The Libertarian Christian Podcast serve as a valuable resource to the Church for years to come.

Special thanks to Matthew Bellis, Katelyn Horn, and Bob Murphy for helping us with the audio. They volunteered their time and talent to help us create a professional-sounding podcast, and we are grateful for their support! It should be noted that their support for the podcast is not to be construed as their endorsement of the ideas and beliefs we talk about on the podcast.

Ep 8: Liberty Strategies with Robin Koerner

We libertarians tend to be a philosophical bunch, and many of us can spend countless hours arguing over the finer points of economics, or trying to explain how Rothbardian political economy applies to environmental issues.

Welcome to the third episode of The Libertarian Christian Podcast. Today, we explore another volatile topic: violence, self-defense, and pacifism.
