Computer access issues, have prevented me from posting over the past few days. Apologies to all.
At the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington DC on February 3, 1994, Mother Teresa stated: And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?"
Indeed, if we cannot protect the life and liberty of these smallest versions of ourselves, even with their so-called "imperfections," then Mother Teresa's words take on significant meaning.
Nothing can diminish the pain and loss which has been inflicted upon the CT community. Political leaders who may use that loss to lead a "national discussion," however, must not be allowed to limit the "discussion" to one focusing on inanimate weapons in the hands of a criminal or deranged portion of the society. Neither can it be used to emphasize only the so-called "progressive" political view.
The "discussion," to be worthy of the tragedy which prompts it, must also include a deeper discussion on the meaning and purpose of life at all its natural stages. Mother Teresa's words are worthy of consideration.
The obvious truth is, though, that they're just shills for the fascist democrat party that sees individuals owning firearms as an impediment to their goals.
“As Catholics who support the social justice achievements of this President,”
That’s as far as I got.
>>”As Catholics who support the social justice achievements of this President, we are disappointed in his lack of action in working to prevent these heinous acts of violence. We call on President Obama to find the courage to lead our nation and help bring a true and lasting end to gun violence.<<
I stopped reading after this liberal claptrap. “Social justice” is code for “taking from makers.” “True and lasting end to gun violence” is code for “repeal the 2nd Amendment and confiscate all guns.”

I hope you don’t mind me pinging stuff to your attention.
There are a few threads going that I believe are right down your alley.
This whole political preemption of the school shooting seems to support my cynical nature. The issue of gun violence is a cultural problem. American culture is rapidly changing to support progressive ideals. Individual responsibility is no longer important. Christian morality is considered to be bigoted, old fashioned and irrelevant to moderne life. Revenge for past slights is understandable. Mexicans are replacing their love of God with Santa Muerte. Goth is acceptable and New Age is hip. The village? Let the government care for our neighbors. Hip Hop defines the Black way of life with rap instructing on the beauty of revenge and murder for minor conflicts or for fun.
You see, the left sees an opportunity to make their enemies criminals. I’m not going to comply with any gun turn in, are you? The Tea Party is a criminal enterprise. Nobody is about to mess with the Black gun owners or shooters, you and I are the targets.
Behold, the Catholics’ culture of social justice. Amorality and insanity. Liberals are spreading it like evangelical preachers in Africa.
Sin, which is, as Sheen observed, the deliberate eviction of Love from the soul. Sin is in the enforced absence of Divinity.
Which shows that the taking of young lives is not what really bothers them.
