Boehner’s Catholic Critics Rush to Protect Welfare State
by Fr. Robert A. Sirico @ NRO

To jump so seamlessly from the Magisterium’s insistence on the fundamental and non-negotiable moral obligation to the poor to the specifics of contingent, prudential, and political legislation is wholly unjustified in Catholic social teaching.

But Fr. Sirico, there are so many advantages to maintaining a large welfare state. For one thing, we can be “compassionate” and “Christian” without even lifting a finger!
