a complex issue

By Jeff (articles ) | Dec 06, 2003

From today's Wichita Eagle:

Bishop George Fitzsimons of the Diocese of Salina said he thinks Catholic politicians in his diocese are following church teachings for the most part.

"It does become a complex issue," he said. "On one hand, someone may be against abortion, the killing of an unborn human being, and then in favor of the death penalty, the killing of a grown person."

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    And, of course, none other than John Paul II muddied these waters by trying to change the centuries old teaching of the Church on capital punishment. Well, no, he knew he couldn't change it, so he just tried to modify it enough to prohibit it while giving lip service to the tradition. Words have consequences. Especially if you're dealing with a very thick lot of bishops who don't know or don't want to know the difference between a baby and a hardened, vicious murderer.
