I’ve mentioned the pro-life walkers from American Life League before. They are walking from Maine to Washington, DC, this summer to bring attention to the pro-life cause. (This is similar to the older Crossroads group that walks across the country, west to east.)
Along the way, the walkerseaders, among them the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, to pressure Senate leaders to reintroduce the legislation.
Seriously, I can understand stewardship of creation, but is this really something to spend any amount of time or money on? SUVs are the hip target of those who need scapegoats. Of course, the real science shows that SUVs are the last worry on the list of envronmental polluters, but that’s not sexy enough and doesn’t allow us to hate all those “rich” people who get to drive all those SUVs. Meanwhile, the USCCB wastes its time lobbying for this, and other, liberal laws. Does the USCCB do anything other than waste people’s time and money?
