Redemption from Hypocrisy
By JACK REEVES
When U.S. Health and Human Services directed religious-affiliated employers which provide health insurance to include contraception, conservative Catholics and Protestants objected.
They claim it imposes values contrary to their faith and violates separation of church and state.
Based on my belief and values, the fact that my taxes buy bullets and bombs to kill people in Afghanistan and Iraq is equivalent and wrong. Call it sin.
A human embryo is sacred. Killing humans is saluted.
This contradiction is often rationalized, even theologically.
This is why humans need redemption.
