I've been catching up on blogs, and found a great post by canon lawyer extraordinaire Dr. Ed Peters at his In the Light of the Law
blog. Dr. Peters argues why the Diocese of Albany's needle exchange program for drug addicts
is formal cooperation
with the the evil of drug use. Before now, I never knew what to think about needle exchange programs, with supporters arguing that they are good initiatives because they help stop the spread of disease. After Dr. Peters's arguments, I'm persuaded that regardless of any incidental good, these programs are an immoral means that should be rejected. What do you think?
