Resisting Throwaway Culture: How a Consistent Life Ethic Can Unite a Fractured People

Resisting Throwaway Culture

By Charles C. Camosy. Begins with the starting point that two of every three Americans constitute an exhausted majority who reject right/left polarization and are open to alternative viewpoints. Embraces Pope Francis’ challenge to resist throwaway culture on issues ranging from hook-up culture, reproductive technology, abortion, euthanasia, poverty, immigration, treatment of animals, and mass incarceration.
