Editorial Reviews

Review

Camosy diagnoses America's current ills better than anyone and offers the most compelling and hopeful way forward of anybody I've read. Unlike a lot of pro-life activists, he doesn't shy away from the most difficult moral issues of our time. Indeed, he embraces them, even as he dismantles modern America's "throwaway culture." I don t always agree with Charlie on everything, but if you're looking for a coherent argument and compassionate worldview delivered by someone with the credentials to reach a sophisticated and cynical world this is the only book of its kind. --Matt Lewis, Senior Columnist at the Daily Beast and CNN Political Commentator

I 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, National Review

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, Georgetown University

From the Back Cover

On issues ranging from hook-up culture, reproductive technology, abortion, euthanasia, poverty, immigration, treatment of animals, and mass incarceration, this book articulates a new moral vision in which a culture of encounter and hospitality replaces a consumer culture in which the most vulnerable get used and discarded as so much trash. At bottom, Camosy offers readers a golden opportunity to dialogue about what kinds of values should serve as the foundation for a new political culture.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

I grew up in the Midwest (Kenosha, WI), but I'm now a bioethicist and associate professor of theology at Fordham University in New York City.

Especially in light of our polarized national conversations, I'm interested in building conversation, dialogue, and even solidarity between groups which sometimes find it difficult to engage. In particular, I want to show the overlap between 'pro-life conservatives' and 'social justice liberals.' I also work on exchange between people who identify as secular and those who identify as religious.

At the time I update this bio, I'm the author of six books and have written regularly for papers like the New York Times, Washington Post, New York Daily News, New York Post, and more. I write the "Purple Catholicism" column for Religion News Service and serve as a contributor for Crux.

I'm active on Twitter (@ccamosy) and can be reached at ccamosy@gmail.com
