Charles C. Camosy is associate professor of theological and social ethics at Fordham University. His work on ethics and policy moves beyond stale and lazy arguments which artificially pit liberals and conservatives against each other. Instead, Camosy finds common ground by unpacking the real complexities of some of today's most passionately debated issues.
Camosy is a principled. smart, faithful and courageous defender
of human life and human dignity. A lot of us talk about the
"consistent life ethic, ' but he articulates, demonstrates and
practices it. If you want to understand how the "throwaway culture"
challenges both parties, left and right, and every one of us, read
this book.John Carr
Director, Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life, Georgetown UniversityI'm grateful to Charles Camosy for doing the hard work of trying to hash out what Catholic social teaching looks like in practice in the world as it is today. You don't have to agree with every word in this book to be inspired to do the same. This book is an exercise in moral civic responsibility and an act of love.Kathryn Jean Lopez
Senior fellow, National Review Institute, editor-at-large National Review Camosy has written a unique, deeply thoughtful book that merits the consideration of anyone who wishes to understand a Catholic approach to the intrinsic value and dignity of every human life. Though I may not agree with all of his conclusions, his arguments are well worth engaging.Alexandra DeSanctis
National Review Staff WriterA deftly written and ultimately encouraging analysis of our currently polarized political culture that seemingly breaks and fragments our country down into seemingly unreconcilable factions, "Resisting Throwaway Culture" offers insights and solutions that are as thoughtful and thought-provoking as they are ultimately inspired and inspiring. Very highly recommended for both community and academic library Contemporary Political Science collections.Midwest Book Review
