Meghan Clark is fast becoming one of my favorite young theologians. She has a post up at PoliticalTheology.com about entitlements that makes, with greater theological sophistication than I am capable of, one of the points I have been trying to make here: Yes, people, as people, are entitled to food, shelter and health care. She also usefully debunks the "false dichotomy" between person/private charity and government assistance. Good stuff.
