Gordon Clark and Unionism – Nov 28, 1962

From the Indianapolis News, with multiple spelling errors:

On the defense of compulsory unionism which alleges that unions confer benefits on all laborers, Dr. Clark says: “The unions make a spacious [sic] defense by claiming that all workmen should help pay for the privileges that the unions have won.

“This piece of propaganda is exploded by applying to the churches. I believe……that….. my church contributes great spiritual value to our society. Then, by the union arguement [sic], all people should be compelled to join church and pay dues – even if they think my church is a positive evil.

“Fortunately for society, and even fortunately for me too, on this question there is a large majority in favor of freedom of choice.”
