The archbishop said members of the catholic church, which is anti-abortion, should be as concerned about the lives lost to gun violence.
“To be consistent, that’s the challenge for believers.” San Antonio Archbishop Gustavo García-Siller said. “If we do not respect every life as a principle, we are not pro-life.”
He said that the work he is most interested involves ensuring that every life is respected.
“Every life is precious,” He said. When asked if that attitude could translate into support for some kind of gun control or policy change, the Archbishop responded: “We hope. We hope.”
“Guns have been the instruments, the tools for the many deaths and shootings in the United States,” he said.
He even invoked the second commandment, comparing the way people in the US treat guns to the worship of idols.
“Guns are considered idols in our country and particularly here in Texas,” García-Siller said. “And until we surrender, and we stop idolatry, and we see people first before us, we’ll be able to be consistent with our message, faithful to the Gospel values and faithful to God.” San Antonio Archdiocese holds prayer breakfast in Aftermath of Uvalde mass shooting | kens5.com
