A Jesuit university president cuddles up to the culture of death. Delicately.
U.S. Rep. Russ Carnahan met Friday with a roundtable of activists and community leaders to discuss stem cell research, following up on last week's House passage of a stem cell bill that Carnahan co-sponsored. The group that met Friday at the Missouri Botanical Garden was looking at how to promote the issue in our region. At the meeting, the Rev. Larry Biondi, S.J. of St. Louis University said: "I am not a delicate person, but I am in a delicate situation" with the Vatican on the stem cell issue. Biondi supports the research.
Remind me. Who was that Swabian lampshade-maker who said, in 1943 or so, "I am not a delicate person, and this human tissue will just go to waste anyway"?
