Highlighted below is a small portion of an editorial entitled The Moment is Now, written by the editors of America, the leading Jesuit publication of the English speaking world.

I would like to point out that the editorial pits the rich against the poor, implies a moral duty upon the reader to raise his/her taxes, buy a hybrid car, install expensive light bulbs and vote for liberal Democratic policies, I am not sure if violating any one of these would constitute a mortal sin or a venial sin?
