Description

Rev. Sirico looks at a resurgent movement in religious circles to advance big government programs behind a so-called “social justice” agenda. The Religious Left has aligned with Big Labor, pacifist groups and liberal politicians to promote collectivist alternatives to the free market. Can anyone stop them?

Sirico in his role as a public intellectual in the pages of prominent newspapers, or on the radio or television, being called upon for statements regarding economics, civil rights, and issues of religious concern.
