Sea of Scarlet

Monastic Mumblings, a Friar’s Journey: Sea of Scarlet:

“Torture is an unmitigated moral evil. I have no understanding of any sort of truly Christian theology in which torture is not a grave moral sin. So here we are in what can arguably be considered the most ‘Christian’ of political times and for the last five years we have been torturing various suspects around the world. Where is the outrage?… Somehow something has changed in American Christianity. We no longer believe in the gentle Shepherd from Nazareth, we have put our faith in politics, guns and bombs. We have lost our way on a sea of scarlet sin, and have no one to blame but ourselves.”

I agree rather strongly with this. Haven’t managed to read Kavanaugh yet, but he’s climbing up the reading list.
