Website Review: Access to Catholic Social Justice Teachings

A review based on: http://www.justpeace.org

Description

Access to Catholic Social Justice Teachings is a personal web page dedicated to providing resources about Catholic social justice issues. The site focuses not only on the actual teachings of the Church, but also on orthopraxis (living right), with links and information about practicing what you preach. Though the site is quite disorganized and confusing, there is a large amount of valuable information to be found here.

However, the user should be cautioned that this site follows the tendency of the Catholic Worker Movement to profess a radical pacifism which undermines the Church's teaching concerning just war. Many of the articles found on the subject of war, especially the current American war, reject both the teachings of the Church and the prudence of Her hierarchy.
