Letters to the Editor

Social sin

Wow. I was stunned when I read Father McCarthy’s article “Private Prisons in Georgia” . It upset me very much and it made me angry and it also made me feel ashamed. How can such a thing be going on in a civilized nation? How can it be even legal to make a profit of the deep misery of human beings? This is a social sin that cries out to heaven. Thank you Father McCarthy for speaking out on this issue when no one else cares. Thank you also to Mary Hood Hart for her beautiful article “I was in Prison...”. May God have mercy on us in our smug and puffed up self-righteousnesses.
