Morality Matters to our Economy
One of the most insightful editorials I’ve read relating to our current economic situation was written by Star Parker, president of CURE, the Center for Urban Renewal Education. She reinforces Presidential candidate Mark Santorum’s claim that “morality and economy cannot be separated.”
Star points out that our society relies on politicians and bureaucrats to write laws and regulations aimed at achieving fairness and justice. As a result our courts are swamped with trillions of dollars in lawsuits attempting to force regulatory compliance. Yet our society tolerates a million abortions a year, and many claim there is no place for traditional values in the public space. A terrible inconsistency, and according to Parker, “a sign of our deeply troubled and lost society.”
