God, the family, and property are inseparably linked by nature and by law.

Biblical religion and morality are indispensable pillars for liberty. No political philosophy or platform can hold up that neglects to place the Lordship of Christ as the central foundation and His Law as the standard.

"In attacking property, Marxism attacks with it not only the family but God as well. It sees, and correctly so, God, the family, and property as inseparably linked by nature and by law.

"Every defense of property therefore is ineffective and paralyzed if it simply seeks to defend private property without at the same time defending the family and Christianity. This is the fallacy of the libertarians who seek to defend private property in isolation from Christian faith and the family. Too often, by this limited approach, they not only begin with two strikes on them but also more than partially in the enemy’s camp."
