Gov. Quinn, Cardinal Bernardin and the New York Times
« on: March 25, 2011, 01:50:10 PM »
Given many of the questions bandied back and forth on the now closed Washington Post piece, comes this article in this morning's New York Times. I have been an admirer of the late Cardinal Bernardin for a long time and this article is quite timely.

Good article!

And you're right, it is timely.  There are those who would vilify and symbolically crucify HB Jonah for making Orthodoxy "public", as it were.  One only has to go to OCAnews.org to see that.  Those who would do so I would invite to also take a look at OCAtruth.com, to get a more balanced view of the issues involved.

What about those who find capital punishment appropriate and morally justifiable based on their religious beliefs?

I don't know.  I've heard a lot of creepy stuff about the late Cardinal Bernadine which would, if verified make me extremely dubious about supporting anyone who was under his spiritual guidance.

I'm sure that he had his virtues though.
Men may dislike truth, men may find truth offensive and inconvenient, men may persecute the truth, subvert it, try by law to suppress it. But to maintain that men have the final power over truth is blasphemy, and the last delusion. Truth lives forever, men do not.
