Social Welfare Policy

Movers Lines, G.

That this Synod congratulates the Social Responsibilities Commission on its analysis in Globalisation and Social Policy but returns it to the Commission for conclusions and recommendations based thereon in the following fields:

(1) What is our duty towards young males who are denied ‘A Place in the Sun’ at time when their natural
aggressiveness is at its highest and whose consequent inward attacks on such a society are only to be expected?

(2) The generation of a social welfare policy based on the sound Christian doctrine of duty instead of the
doctrine of rights.

(3) A social welfare policy that is redistributionally operated so that it is always and automatically fundable.
