Saint of the Day: St. Rose Venerini

We don’t kill people because we think they’re likely to turn bad some day.

Simcha Fisher - published on 12/02/15

I’m not going to pretend that it’s easy to figure out how to respond to the refugee crisis. We have real reason to be afraid of terror attacks from radicalized Muslims, and one of the basic functions of government is to keep our country peaceful and safe. I’m not in favor of just opening the flood gates and welcoming in anyone who can tell a sad story.

But we cannot say what Ben Carson has said, especially as pro-lifers. We cannot. There has to be some middle ground between “Come one, come all” and “Too bad for you – you go die now.”

Read the rest at the National Catholic Register.
