Fr. Schall on Mercy

Fr. Schall on Mercy
"Mercy is a response to the repentant. It does not change the unrepentant. It often hardens them. Technically, mercy extends to sin of whatever kind or species. But mercy does not forgive. God in His mercy forgives. Mercy is contingent on the sinner’s acknowledgement that he is responsible for something objectively wrong in his acts or thoughts." (Fr. James V. Schall S. J.)

Bureaucrats vs. Taxpayers

Dan Mitchell of the CATO Institute made this video which was posted on Big Government.Com yesterday. It's disheartening to learn what the public sector unions are dong to our financial future, but there is an easy (well, maybe not so easy) solution: abolish the federal departments (along with some others) mentioned in the video, and the savings could be passed along to private sector businesses so they could create jobs for the former federal employees. Of course those former federal employees would then have to work - and work for less money - but gravy trains can't run forever.

To read the whole post on which the video appeared, go here.
