Links for 10/25/16

The most important debate today in the estuary where Catholicism intersects with public life is between those whose hearts warm to the libertarianism of the age, specifically as it finds expression in devotion to market economics, and those of us whose minds are suspicious of such inclinations. John Gehring, at the American Prospect, made his case and now Samuel Gregg, at Public Discourse, has replied. I hope to join the debate by week's end. 

At Politico, Donald Trump's only hope in Florida (and beyond Florida, too) is a record low voter turnout. So, everyone who is so disgusted you are are thinking of staying home, think again. 

At National Review, a report on a California judge messing with religious liberty in the worst of ways, ordering an injunction against a synagogue to prevent it from performing a religious ritual. If that is not covered by the First Amendment, nothing is.
