At a recent Knights of Columbus event, Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan of New York and other Church leaders warned against the tendency to “discard” society's marginalized, including immigrants.
During the Knights' 131st convention in San Antonio, Texas, Cardinal Dolan referred to Pope Francis' notion of the “globalization of indifference,” saying this can be seen in how modern society has become a “culture of throwing away.”
“We discard things, from the baby in the womb to our elders, to the immigrant, to the refugee, to the sick, to the poor, to the unemployed,” he told CNA on Aug. 6.
“It's a disposable culture,” he said, “and that's when we treat human life like trash, or like refuge.”
