Helen Prejean

Tuesday 11th January 2005

Today's Independent has a good feature about Sister Helen Prejean who campaigns against the death penalty in the United States and provides help to prisoners on death row. The story contains this nice quote:

She tells me how Christianity in America has been hijacked to support a right-wing ideology which fights crime with retribution instead of rehabilitation. "We have so much Christianity-lite in this country, and George Bush is the embodiment of that. People are abysmally ignorant about the Bible and about the gospel of Jesus because all they hear is this stuff they get at the pulpit."
