Hope and Life Press Announces WHO ARE YOU? WHAT IS YOUR FAITH? AMERICA'S 21st CENTURY ALT-RIGHT AND CATHOLIC SOCIAL DOCTRINE
Maltese-American HLP founder and Catholic author Marcelle Bartolo-Abela challenges American Christians to ask if the Gospel of Trump is compatible to the Gospel of Christ. Using empirical data, she shows how the American people of faith draw the line bounded by devotion to politicians, while violating the fundamental human rights of racial and religious minorities, immigrants, refugees, and women.
East Longmeadow, MA, April 10, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Hope and Life Press is proud to announce the release of the book Who Are You? What is Your Faith? America's 21st Century Alt-Right and Catholic Social Doctrine, written by HLP's Maltese-American founder and Catholic author Marcelle Bartolo-Abela. Exploring the question of the two Executive Orders titled Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States from the lens of Sacred Scripture and the teachings and praxis of the Catholic Church, Bartolo-Abela elucidates how race is the key sociopolitical ordering factor at play in the history and current state of America, with regard to fundamental human rights and the inviolable dignity of human persons. She explicates the underlying nature and stunning demographics of a newly-defined American alt-right population, and shows how at least two antithetical forms of Christianity and Catholicism are being actively employed in the United States, at the intersection of politics and religion, to further a multidimensional racial agenda. Bartolo-Abela reminds readers that an effective and genuine remedy to America’s conflict does exist in accordance with the Faith and provides recommendations for non-violent change. Who Are You? What is Your Faith? America's 21st Century Alt-Right and Catholic Social Doctrine is available in paperback and ebook editions from Amazon, the publishers Hope and Life Press, and major booksellers.
