Of wars and men

I found the July 1 issue cover article to have interesting and valid ideas, but a couple of wrong messages, too.

I work at a large public university, and contrary to the article, do not see “typical college males” to be “paralyzed by insecurity and guilt.”

Also, when did “harming the earth, and starting wars” become virtues to be recommended in a Catholic diocesan magazine? Every pope I have known has been a peacemaker trying to end wars, not start them.

Claiming that to have happiness and energy men need to start wars and harm the earth, is completely against centuries of Catholic teaching (and basic logic).
