A pro-life point

To the senators who voted no on the gun legislation last week: Having seen the capital letter following each name of a senator who voted no, I am inclined to think that you may label yourselves as "pro-life." However, you have demonstrated that you are not pro-life at all, that you are actually pro-National Rifle Association and very probably pro-money.

To the naysayers among you who are Christian, and especially Catholic-Christian: Your position relates in no way to the teaching of the One you profess to follow. Your behavior is disgraceful, sinful. I urge you to read Matthew 26:52: "Then Jesus said to him, 'Put your sword back into its place; for all those who take up the sword shall perish by the sword.' " We can guess what the wording would have been if there had been guns in the time of Jesus.
