Why Can't All Archbishops Be Like Chaput?

The Rocky Mountain News recently covered a breakfast of civic and business leaders in Denver. Here is a taste of this interesting exchange:

"Why do (religions) feel they have to impose their views on us?" asked one woman during a spirited question-and-answer session following Chaput's speech to the City Club of Denver.

"If we don't - you'll impose your views on us," Chaput shot back to murmurs from the group of about 120 business and civic leaders."

You are right in saying that people buying from Walmart is part of the problem. But I have a question. Have you ever heard of the "ocassion of sin"? Walmart provides this. Do you think highly erotic images should be flaunted all over the public forum? These images provide temptation to people. I would venture the guess that you would not. If then the temptation to impurity may be checked by regulation. Why should not the temptation of greed?
