The U.S. government funding a eugenics NGO should really creep more people out.

They tend towards anti-reproduction, strangely.

He might not accept a blog, even though TOF is perfectly respectable as a serious source. So here’s a bit from David Bentley Hart’s 𝘈𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘪𝘴𝘵 𝘋𝘦𝘭𝘶𝘴𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘴: 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘊𝘩𝘳𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘢𝘯 𝘙𝘦𝘷𝘰𝘭𝘶𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘐𝘵𝘴 𝘍𝘢𝘴𝘩𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘢𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘌𝘯𝘦𝘮𝘪𝘦𝘴:

Well, do you think that the writings of the early Church Fathers are in agreement with the articles?

Sounds like a little of that could be mitigated by having an aristocratic class who engages in questions of state.

I typically agree with the interpretation of those who say it summarizes the teachings of the primitive church, so there's no tension between me and them in that :-)

But I'm sympathetic to your point about being willy-nilly about them leading to degeneration.

I would say that the 1662 needs to be at least the progenitor of your prayer book to be an Anglican. Which means the 1928 is recognizably Anglican, but the 1979 isn't :-) I'd argue that the unified, primitive church has greater authority to the articles.

True, but it's the sort of pressure women have been under for a long time. Just as men have been under the pressure of being military leaders a long itme.

I think it's superior to genetic monarchy. And it wouldn't lead to that if the standard church practices to ensure consent were followed.

Biological ties are important to the monarchy, but mere inheritance doesn't seem to be enough. See for example Commodus after Marcus Aurelius. The Japanese family businesses and mafia also seems to do well with this model of inheritance going to the son in law.
