Archbishop Charles Scicluna has described euthanasia and the morning-after pill as reflections of today’s ‘throw-away culture’.
We do indeed live in an American-style throw-away culture – with a throw-away morality to go with it.
Morality – like religion itself – is man-made. It is not decreed by God, as religious people are indoctrinated into believing by priests. Many people, in fact, have no scruples about ignoring it or discarding it when it goes against their needs or interests, as the endless corruption scandals in business, politics, sport and at the Vatican itself attest.
