Welcome back! Phil took a few weeks off for some voice issues/head cold…which has only become worse. So here’s the audio of Phil speaking to his church about having a Christian perspective on politics. If you have to read his thoughts on the topic, you can find his notes turned into a blog post over on his website.
This week, Phil talks about our need to respect the government because its authority comes from God. This doesn’t mean that we follow the government to the point of disobeying God. Furthermore, we risk so much when we conflate politics with religion.
But more about that on this episode of The Monarchist.
According to an article on The Atlantic, Americans are more likely to be killed by their own furniture and/or TV’s—by being crushed, not via the slow suicide of obesity—than they are of being killed by a terrorist attack. If we are so relatively safe, why are we still operating as if terrorists lurked behind every corner? Because the money is just too good.
We’re back after a nearly two-month hiatus! Stay tuned—there’s more to come!
This is the “lost episode” of The Monarchist. Recorded in the past few weeks, Phil got a little crazy, so this episode had to be edited for excessive anger, intensity, and insanity. As it stands now, this is a fairly even discussion of affirmative action, questioning the purpose behind the policy. We hope you find it interesting. Maybe motivating.

It’s easy for politics to get heated, but that doesn’t mean we need to be hateful. There is a way to love people, even if you think they’re wrong. It’s possible to engage in discourse—even debate—without taking the argument personally or making it personal in response. Let’s debate the issues. In fact, let’s really dig into them. But, let’s leave the snide, snarky, irrelevant personal attacks out of it. Hatred and rage have no place in politics.
