Read this strong opinion by a radical catholic in a blog – click here – with the remarkable name: “True Restoration”!
We often hear fellow church members say things like: “While I don’t agree with the wars, I support the troops.” What you would call an oxymor(m)on.
A quote from the blog: “If you join the military today, you are not signing up for honorable military service.”
Another remarkable thing I read on this blog is the connection that was made between “keeping a government in power that murders civilians in other countries, babies in our own.” Unlike Catholics, Mormons do not think abortion is murder, but do see it as a tragic evil in society. Of course the question of legalization of abortion is a discussion by itself. Nevertheless, I very much like the connection that is made here between two forms of great disrespect for life. In a polarized political world people are either for supporting the troops and against abortion, or the other way around. A logical and radical approach supports neither.
