Right Alliances by Robert P. George

Right Alliances

Robert P. George on Our Ecumenical Touchstone

“Right Alliances” was given at a dinner celebrating Touchstone’s 100th issue, held in Washington, D.C., in late May. It has been revised slightly for publication.

The fact that Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox Christians are able to come together as we do tonight, in a spirit of fellowship and good will, is a tribute to our nation and to its great tradition of religious pluralism. Of course, it has taken us some time, we Protestants, Catholics, and Orthodox Christians, to get to this point.

"Here we do not concede one square millimeter of territory to falsehood, folly, contemporary sentimentality, or fashion. We speak the truth, and let God be our judge. . . . Touchstone is the one committedly Christian conservative journal."
