ARMSTRONG FINDS VIRTUE
“The virtue of the Sabbath, honoring the sanctity of life, reclaiming fatherhood, reclaiming motherhood, marriage and family, physiology of success, truth and its rewards, conscientious objection, the morality of race, the virtue of capitalism, the virtue of saving, moving towards a virtuous civilization.”
Those are, verbatim, the 12 chapters of “Reawakening Virtues: Restoring What Makes America Great,” a book published last week by talk radio host and columnist Armstrong Williams, drawing praise for “honesty” by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, and for “true representation” by Fox News contributor Juan Williams.
“The work of cleansing our consciences and rekindling virtue is a dynamic and vital process. It requires time, reflection, and an open spirit. But it is well worth it,” the author tells Inside the Beltway.
“And just remember, whatever else the media is selling — whether it’s materialism, idolatr y, spending beyond your means, or merely the soft oppression of low expectations — when it comes down to the comedown, they won’t be there. But our virtues, if practiced and refined regularly, will stand us in good stead,” he adds.
Armstrong Williams is getting rave early reviews for his book, “Reawakening Virtues: Restoring What Makes America Great.”
