A Catholic Perspective on what happened yesterday at the Capitol
Those okay with doing evil to accomplish what they view as a greater good forget that we were never made for this world anyway.
I left politics years ago because I realized that changing laws without also changing hearts was a fool’s errand.
But that doesn’t mean that I’m not still involved in bringing’s God’s Kingdom to the secular world in my own ways. Or that I don’t still pay attention to the news cycle.
So when I saw what happened yesterday at the Capitol, I felt angry. We as humans of any political philosophy can’t use evil means like violence or lying or cheating to accomplish some supposed greater good. What, then, is the point of it all?
The greatest and most perfect of worldly utopias does not stack up to the peace of Heaven that awaits those who love God and each other while on earth.
