Reader: Staffers did excellent job covering inaugural March for Life

Thanks to The Criterion for its coverage of the inaugural Indiana March for Life on Jan. 22.

It was a wonderful day for everyone who was a part of this event, and staff members Natalie Hoefer, John Shaughnessy and Sean Gallagher’s articles and pictures were great! They captured so much for anyone who did not get to all the events.

Thanks to their coverage, those who missed it will surely want to be there in 2019.

Politicizing faith does nothing to lead people to Jesus Christ, reader says

I would like to address the Jan. 19 article with the headline “Catholics condemn ‘racist’ comments attributed to President Trump.”

Did you ever stop to consider millions of Catholics chose this Church to lead us spiritually—not politically? The Church has such a positive impact on millions of lives every day. Surely, we can find our way to put into print those stories instead.

This weekly diatribe is detrimental to our Church in that it widens our existing political divide. We also need to be cognizant of the people who are considering joining us, and the message we’re sending them.

Regardless of your personal leanings, politicizing our faith does nothing to lead people to Jesus Christ.

- Jackie Bultman, Indianapolis
