Letters from readers: “But they did not hear
Pope John Paul II was the most Christian of people since Jesus Christ himself. He was against war, preemptive or not, capital punishment and for the betterment of the less fortunate people of the world.
It’s amazing to me that, as with Jesus, people listened but did not hear. As Jesus would have done, he forgave the man who tried to kill him. Even those in ‘high places’ laud his accomplishments but turn a deaf ear to his wisdom.
How the millions of ‘Christian’ hypocrites seem to prevail baffles me.
