Human Rights and Human Wrongs

Numerous human rights violations have been recorded in our history. All 
nations and all races are not exempted from these violations. We come to ask, 
are human rights still important to us?

Intersect, the quarterly magazine of the John J. Carroll Institute on Church 
and Social Issues (JJCICSI) in its September issue titled, “Regenerating 
Culture,” presents the connection between human rights and Catholic social 
thought. The article, “Human Rights and Human Wrongs,” features a look at 
situations accepted as normal in Philippine society but will be embarrasing to 
Filipinos 100 years from now. An example of this is a single copy of a 
newspaper which features an account of widespread malnutrition among Filipino 
children while advertising seven slimming programs. The article is written by 
Fr. John J. Carroll, S.J. Also featured in the issue are articles on the 
regeneration of Filipino culture, diaspora philanthrophy, Philippine 
environment, Filipino youth heroism, responsible parenthood and microfinance.
