"It's to die for"

"One does not make the world more human by refusing to act humanely here and now"

In his first encyclical, (Deus caritas est, 31b) Benedict XVI, in a critique of the Marxist critique of charity, makes the clear observation that one does not make a humane world by refusing to act humanely; And just as no one makes a better world by executing all those who stand in the way of his vision of a better world, no woman creates a better world for herself by killing her child in the womb. For as blindingly obvious as this would seem, those who are willing to try, are legion.
