By Fr. Jerry Pokorsky, Catholic Culture - When a priest meddles in politics, there are significant dangers to his ministry and to the people he serves. He risks not only damaging his authority as a priest of Jesus Christ but unleashing great evils. So as a priest, when I offer my views on the current troubles (below), many Catholics will undoubtedly heartily agree... In my view, the violence we see in the cities has very little or nothing to do with racism. I believe it is a Marxist-Leninist diabolical assault on the family and our culture... But it’s helpful to keep in mind this useful nugget of political wisdom by Edmund Burke: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

By David Harsanyi, The Stream - Despite the occasional looting, chaos, property damage, trespassing, rioting, graffiti, assaults, arson, and general mayhem, the media consistently assure us that Antifa “protesters” are “largely peaceful.” And since the majority of buildings in Portland, Seattle, and Denver haven’t been looted yet, who am I to argue?... Of course, it takes only a sliver of the population to transform downtowns into a mess and create quality-of-life issues for thousands of law-abiding citizens. And the mayors who surrender parts of their cities to left-wing “protesters” are tacitly endorsing lawlessness themselves.
