This lecture addresses these questions:
- What is meant by the term “Culture of Death?” Topics include abortion and population control. (Note: end of life issues will only be touched on briefly.)
- What role does the State play in creating this culture which is so at odds with traditional Judeo-Christian moral teaching?
- Does the Culture of Death make us more free or less free?
- What is a Christ-like response to the Culture of Death?
