Kasich’s ‘Ministry’ of Judeo-Christian Values

Actions are louder than words.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who is running near the bottom of the Republican presidential primary pack, told listeners at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, that if he is elected president, he would create an agency that promotes “Judeo-Christian Western values.” Because nothing says Liberty more than creating a government agency that disseminates propaganda. “U.S. public diplomacy and international broadcasting have lost their focus on the case for Western values and ideals and effectively countering your opponents’ propaganda and disinformation,” Kasich said. His solution? “A new agency that has a clear mandate to promote the core, Judeo-Christian Western values that we and our friends and allies share: the values of human rights, the values of democracy, freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom of association.”

Like most politicians who say something they truly believe but that proves inconvenient, Kasich later “clarified” the statement at a speech at Regent University, a Christian college in Virginia, saying he wanted to simply focus the mission of Voice of America. Creating a broadcast arm of the government with Christian overtones is yet another example of Kasich blurring the roles of Church and State. As governor, Kasich supported expanding government, expanding Medicare and supporting Common Core because he told everyone it was the Christian thing to do — completely ignoring Christians who believe Caesar’s work is different than Christ’s. If Kasich’s propaganda arm ever launched, it would describe Judeo-Christian values in a secular way, overwriting the God who is honored through those values. Kasich is bringing a big-statist liberal’s solution to a problem best solved through conservative methods: Charge each agency in government to pursue those values described in the Constitution — a document created through Judeo-Christian and Enlightenment thought. After all, actions are louder than words.
