Albert Mohler: The Preconditions for Constructive Political Change

The widespread rioting and looting we’ve witnessed in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer highlight the need for stability and trust in the achievement of justice.

In the United States, the act of political protest has often led to constructive political change, but rioting never has. And the more widespread and the more violent the rioting, the more negative the political effects have been over time.

The United States Constitution guarantees citizens the right to a redress of grievances.

But there are preconditions that are necessary—the first is a stable order in which justice can actually take place. The second is the kind of trust, social trust, that is necessary for any effort at achieving even approximate justice.

If you take out stability, if you eliminate order, and if you erode social trust, the accomplishment of justice becomes well-nigh impossible.

Bowyer: Do the Riots Make Any Sense?


Do the riots make any sense? While there is a clearly an understandable rationale behind peaceful protests over the death of George Floyd, what purpose can there be in looting, destroying businesses and engaging in more acts of violence against innocent people?

How is justice served by piling injustice on top of injustice?

There’s no logic to this except for that of mysterium iniquitatis—Latin for the ‘the mystery of evil’. The sacking and burning of businesses, the breakdown of order, the embrace of chaos is not rational. It’s not just destructive—it’s self-destructive.

Much of what is happening has nothing to do with race or economics or politics or ideology.

Some things are too big for us to handle on our own. It’s time for Americans to pray about the crises that have engulfed us.

Owen Strachan: President Trump Was Right on Antifa

The recent events across America have reminded citizens that freedom, peace, and safety are fragile things.

The death of George Floyd in Minnesota calls for justice through our system of due process. The officer who suffocated Floyd had numerous citations for bad conduct. Unfortunately, police unions make it very hard to remove bad cops. Following Floyd’s death, peaceful protests were held. But then depraved rioting, looting, and destruction unfolded.

In the midst of this lawlessness, the group that calls itself Antifa has wreaked havoc. Antifa is evil, a movement of nihilism cloaked in the tones of liberation.

Thankfully, President Trump labeled Antifa a “domestic terrorist group,” one of the more important domestic decisions thus far of his presidency. Attorney General William Barr publically reinforced this stance in force.

In riled times, we seek freedom, peace and safety. And we seek justice—justice in Floyd’s case, and justice to end Antifa’s reign of terror.
