Over at the Christian Libertarian Facebook Group, we have amazing discussions pretty much all the time. A common question, especially amongst newcomers to the group, is how to interpret Romans 13. Scott B. has assembled links and dates to all of these discussions, which I’d like to share with you here. (You also can read my exegesis and discussion of the passage here.) I hope this encourages you to join this group and become a part of the conversation!

From a member of the Christian libertarian facebook group:
I’m not sure who created this group, but I want to commend them for it and the members that make it what it is. This group has been very educational for me compared to other libertarian groups and it has really helped me understand how I am libertarian and christian at the same time. I read one comment on here that really stood out to me. It said, "I am libertarian because I am a christian." Love it! Keep it up!
Well, as the creator of the group, this sort of comment really warms my heart. The discussion that takes place is incredibly important and formative for all involved. We argue, we debate, we live and learn. If you’re not part of it, you really ought to be. Join today!
Norman’s away this week in Las Vegas as a Libertarian Party delegate at their national convention, and is leaving it up to me to do News of the Week. Incidentally, Norman has been working with Lee Wrights’s campaign for the LP presidential nomination for some time.
Biggest item? Well, Norman is gone, so that means I’m in charge (at least until he approves my article for submission).
Most absurd item of the week: Playmobil now has a TSA Checkpoint set for kids. (Short video here.) Now your kids can pretend to be
molesters TSA agents, and/or parents can use this as a tool to encourage obedience to the State.
Ron Paul fans will be happy to know (if they don’t already) that Ron Paul has accumulated a considerable number of delegates for the GOP Tampa convention. Is his “Moneyball” strategy working? Rachel Maddow (ironically) seems to be the only cable news host covering this with any level of honesty. Fox”News” seems to concede at times, but largely ignores Paul’s progress. Could this be 1920 GOP convention all over again?
My newest article is the most important article you’ll ever read (this week). Click here for it.
I cannot stress enough how much Jeffrey Tucker’s writings on Laissez-Faire Blog encourage me every day. While writing about state-related issues, Tucker has the uncanny ability to see it through the eyes of somebody hopeful toward the future through innovation and commerce. If you don’t have Laissez-Faire Bookstore on your RSS feed already, please do so.
