Recently discovered this speech from 2010. (Not sure how this link will come through so you may have to copy/paste the url.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dopd0c-rR_c I thought it might be interesting to talk about the role that religious Faith has to play in the struggle of the labor movement. I think there is quite a bit to talk about here. G.K. Chesterton's "distributism" comes to mind. The "Protestant Work Ethic" comes to mind. Even Marx positively quotes the bible in a couple places to support his arguments. Somewhere in the conversation I suppose we must address the Protestant "Faith and not Works" doctrine. It is a bit naive to equate "works" in the one context with "labor" in the other context but there is something there to be hashed out I think. I am tempted to say that "faith not works" inadvertently denigrates the labor movement but like I say it's a bit naive to conflate the two contexts...but, on the other hand perhaps it is a bit naive not to. In any case, I hope you will agree that it is worth discussing.
