Social justice under fire

Sheila Liaugminas | 18 March 2010 | SHEILA REPORTS |  
tags: Catholic social teaching, Christian Gospel values, Church, common good, Glenn Beck, media, Social justice, subsidiarity
Somewhere along the way, we fell into a false dichotomy between ”the peace and social justice crowd” and “the pro-life crowd” in the Catholic Church and among other Christians (as if the Gospel informing Christianity is not both/and instead of either/or) . That divide has only intensified since at least the years when many Catholics took up with fervor the preaching of then-Chicago Archbishop Cardinal Joseph Bernardin in what was best known as ‘the seamless garment’ approach to social justice.
