Star Parker spoke at the recent Steamboat Institute’s Freedom Conference about freedom and how to improve lives and the country. The Steamboat Institute is a non-profit organization committed to educating the public about this great country’s Founding Principles.
Star speaks as someone with experience who bought into liberalism. She was on welfare, cheated the system, and had abortions. She makes the point that liberals claim to care about the poor but stand in the way of every idea that would help them, such as school choice, vouchers, and personal retirement accounts. The left also wages war on religion, the family, and the worldview that built this country.
Liberals have convinced black Americans to put liberalism and its politicians above all else: their faith, their family, and their freedom, in exchange for “social justice.” The civil rights movement was a moral movement in which the people wanted repentance and revival. Those in the so-called social justice movement of today want revenge and redistribution.
Star says the poor are draining us and their own human human capital, their own human spirit, by listening to the lies of the left. Economic envy, social justice, redistribution of wealth — these are inconsistent with biblical teachings and this country’s founding principles.
Thou shalt not covet….Thou shalt not steal.
The person who says, “Do as I say, not as I do,” is a hypocrite. The person who says, “Do as I do, not as I’ve done,” is a teacher.
Star Parker is a teacher. Lots of good stuff in her presentation.
