Bp W: Why Suffering?
#25
Sorry, I don't understand what the 10 Commandments have to do with putting family before country.  If you want to explain it, I'll listen, but I don't get it just by reference to it.

It is a Catholic principle that the common good outweighs the needs of the individual, including the individual family.   The common civil good is usually defined by what is good for one's nation.  That would go to service both civil and military.

I'm not sure by what logic you put family before country.  I know the Neo-Cons do it, but they're not going from a Catholic (or even Conservative) basis.
