The articles in the Southern Cross (Aug. 15, 2019) concerning the shootings in El Paso and Dayton miss the mark about what’s happening in our culture. Mrs. Hoods’ article unwittingly points to it though. She mentions civilized society, as if we are one, but we are not. Our technology and level of education does not mean we are civilized.

Again, the United States is dealing with two deadly shootings that have left many people in this country devastated and asking why. Unfortunately, I am reading in the Southern Cross paper only platitudes from the U.S. Bishops and I was surprised how little thought was given in their response to the two tragic shootings. As a Catholic community we should look deeper into it and reading some articles I noted that Dr. Gregory Jantz has found some disturbing trends.

Dear Editor,

 

I first wish to say how much I appreciate receiving the Southern Cross. We in the Diocese of Savannah are most fortunate to be able to keep abreast of what is happening in our Church and how we relate to its teachings (Pope Francis, bishops, et al.).

If Mary Hood Hart was looking for a reason as to why pro-lifers are not spreading their efforts among other life issues as she attempts to rally in her article, “All for one life and one life for all,” she need not look any further than the actual date that her article was printed, June 6, D-Day. On D-Day, Allies combined forces in one mass attack on the beaches of France in an effort to free France from Nazi control and to begin the end of World War II.

As a prolife witness for decades I need to respond to Mrs. Hart’s commentary of June 6. The article is a clear example of the seamless garment thinking of the late Cardinal Bernardin. Disparate issues are given the same moral weight. The distinction between what is intrinsically evil and what is a matter of prudential judgment is ignored. Issues that are essentially important are trivialized and other issues are given more importance than they deserve. A state’s use of the death penalty for a convicted criminal is not morally equivalent to abortion.
