Dennis Prager’s Case for Judeo-Christian Values

Everyone must understand the distinctions between liberalism and our founding traditions.

Dennis Prager’s Part Three of this summation was posted earlier.  I now have weblinks for all three parts, which are:

Better answers: The case for Judeo-Christian values

The case for Judeo-Christian values: Part II

Judeo-Christian values: Part III

Many liberals confidently assert that socialism more exactly embodies Judeo-Christian teachings in the Bible than do Judaism or Christianity.  The source of confusion is in looking only at the professed aims of social justice under socialism. 

When we examine the completely different source of authority between socialism and Judeo-Christianity, as Mr. Prager does, it is impossible to reconcile the two.  It is equally impossible to do so when we examine the track record of Western civilization’s Judeo-Christian heritage and the carnage of socialism.
