Important Questions

“The thoughtful person finds herself asking important questions. If Jesus’ ethic speaks of loving one’s enemies, why are we praying for American soldiers but not their victims? Why are we passionate to protect life in the womb but often apathetic about the plight of single moms trying to raise infants without health coverage or access to living wage employment? Why are we working just as hard as everyone else to perpetuate an American dream that results in our 5 percent of the world’s population consuming 26 per cent of the world’s resources? When thoughtful Christians articulate these questions, they are too often told to stop thinking so much and get with the program.”
