Another great homily at Serra Chapel's Latin Tridentine Mass (Sundays @ 8am), on this Pentecost Sunday! In a nutshell, the Holy Spirit allows reconciliation and unity to get us past the alienation which results from man's prideful attempt to "reach the stars" in ways that God does not approve, ways that forget God and rely on controlling others, alienation of the sort seen with the effort to build the Tower of Babel.
Bastiat's "The Law" warns us where this type of plunder leads.
This alienation results in tribalism; no longer simply Americans equal under law, tribalism make us competitors at the public trough, leading us straight into the hell on earth known as socialism. Many tribalist leaders preach the un-American heresy of pacifism in their churches, including some large, white Christian churches, striking at core American values.
