The brave who serve our country are also following their conscience, reader says

In his June 30th “Making A Difference” column, Tony Magliano seems to be trying to justify his being a conscientious objector.

While I believe he doesn’t need to justify himself because he was following his conscience, I also believe he shouldn’t put himself above the Church and her position on just wars. He might even agree with the Church if it was his son or daughter who was in danger of being beheaded by ISIS.

He also seems to indicate that all the military are evil people with their guns and bombs.

Magliano needs to realize that if it were not for all the military who have fought in all the wars with guns and bombs defending freedom, he would be living in a country where he is not free to be a conscientious objector.

Boosting the morale of those fighting doesn’t seem so bad to me. I think he should apologize for the tone of his column. America is the land of the free because of the brave who followed their conscience.
