Regarding the letter of Rosemary Molloy (CNY, June 17).
Ms. Molloy makes an interesting juxtaposition between two excellent writers. They are George Weigel and David Brooks. Unfortunately, it becomes a defense of things being relative and ignores objective truth. These objective truths come to us from the 2,000-year-old teachings and traditions of our Catholic faith. Can we ignore these teachings? We certainly can, after all God the Father gave all humankind a free will. Is there peril in ignoring these objective truths? There certainly is. The risk is substantial. Should we support the taking of innocent human life, it would be a grievous offense against our Creator.
There is no tradeoff in doing good deeds (feeding the poor, paying a just wage, etc.) and taking an innocent human life.
