“That is precisely what makes this so unusual a moment. The bishops have been provoked to such a degree that they will go to this extreme. They would prefer quiet negotiations leading to a principled compromise, instead they are talking about the probability of civil disobedience.”

Way to go Bishops!

Especially after a few years of gov't "training" going out to

other Ministers of Christianity to "calm" the masses while

gov't spoons more cr-p down our throats. biggrin.gif

I thought this thread would be about the Catholic Bishops critique of the Republican/Ryan budget plan.

Rep. Paul Ryan’s House-passed budget plan that would cut food stamps and other assistance programs for the nation’s neediest has enraged the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, which says the move does not meet certain moral criteria, reports The Hill.

In a letter to the House Agriculture Committee, the bishops say that because the budget disproportionately cuts programs that “serve poor and vulnerable people,” it does not meet certain “moral criteria.”

The bishops asked lawmakers to reject “unacceptable cuts to hunger and nutrition” programs for “moral and human reasons,” arguing in their letter that the spending cuts should be focused on subsidy programs that “disproportionately go to large growers and agribusiness,” The Hill reports.

“Cuts to nutrition programs such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program [sNAP] will hurt hungry children, poor families, vulnerable seniors, and workers who cannot find employment. These cuts are unjustified and wrong,” says the letter, signed by Bishop Stephen E. Blaire.

“The archdiocese’s complaint maintains that the HHS mandate violates the First Amendment and federal law by forcing the plaintiffs, all Catholic organizations, to sacrifice their beliefs in order to be able to continue their mission of serving all people in need.
