Quote of the Day

On the theory of Natural Law:
Unfortunately, the traditions which do affirm the common truths speak in such different ways that the unanimity of this affirmation is obscured. One group speaks of the Noahide Commandments, another of Common Grace, another of Natural Law. Jews think "natural law" is a Christian thing, Protestants think it is a Catholic thing, and Catholics sometimes think it a medieval thing. In medieval times, some people thought that it was a Roman thing, and in Roman times, some people thought that it was a Stoic thing. On the contrary, by whatever name it is called it is a shared thing, a human thing, and most of the various traditions and theories about it hold similar presuppositions.
