Cuts to food aid horrifying

To the Catholic Sentinel:

On the subject of the recent cut in food stamps made by Congress; three friends, two of them Catholic, said they knew of abuses, “therefore” aid should be cut.

I was horrified, not only at the lack of logic, but at the cruelty of what they said. I tried to understand their thinking, but then realized they did not know what they were saying. I pray they will somehow understand — perhaps through their own experience.

Jean Mitchell, Portland
