Reader: Iraqi chaplain feature shows hypocritical side of Church

Despite your constant protesting that The Criterion is not pro-war, you have again published an article in the March 23 issue (“Dear Brave Soldier”) glorifying the Iraqi war while carefully avoiding printing anything that condemns it.

Personally, I find the most hypocritical thing about the Catholic Church (and other religions) is that they send chaplains into the war (on all sides) to bless the soldiers as they prepare to intentionally violate the fifth commandment. (Go now and kill your brothers in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen!)
