Open Letter To The US Conference Of Catholic Bishops

So Congressman Paul Ryan’s budget is not “moral” enough for you because the poor will suffer and yet trillion dollar deficits for as far as the eye can see is moral? Is it moral for you to fight for your piece of the Constitution and leave the rest of your fellow Americans having their rights denied? America isn’t a country built on taking from one to give to another, that is socialism that is communism, those are the ideologies that have come to eat your piece of the Constitution, you know the 1st Amendment and the right to freely practice your religion as you see fit.

I bring to the table my argument based on your statement of “morality” in the Congressman Ryan budget which seems to feed a whole hell of lot more then the poor It Is The Catholic Church And Your Billions That Are Commanded to Feed The Poor Not Theft Of Hardworking Taxpayers Dollars

I initially thought to stand with you in that fight, what with the whole enemy of my enemy thing, however, I do not see why I should fight for you, when you will not fight for me. I don’t know why you believe that socialism is the way forward, but it is apparent that you do, for “social justice”. I am here to tell you that you cannot have a “little” socialism, just like you cannot be a “little” pregnant. So I am calling you out here and now and asking you to pray on this socialism/communism twist that the Catholic Church has taken, especially in light of how those Democrats who have run with this socialist/communist/Marxism social justice and have turned totalitarian with a lust for power over We The People, because as is always the case with socialists/communists/Marxist’s in the end they indeed come for you. This Is A Moral Man Cardinals And You Should Be Ashamed Of Yourselves

I suppose there are some Catholics who for a long time have thought they had a monopoly of sorts… not exactly on heaven, but on the social teaching of our Church. Of course there can be differences among faithful Catholics on this.

The work I do as a Catholic holding office conforms to the social doctrine as best I can make of it. What I have to say about the social doctrine of the Church is from the viewpoint of a Catholic in politics applying my understanding to the problems of the day.

Serious problems like those we face today require charitable conversation. Civil public dialogue goes to the heart of solidarity, the virtue that does not divide society into classes and groups but builds up the common good of all.

The overarching threat to our whole society today is the exploding federal debt. The Holy Father, Pope Benedict, has charged that governments, communities, and individuals running up high debt levels are “living at the expense of future generations” and “living in untruth.”

We in this country still have a window of time before a debt-fueled economic crisis becomes inevitable. We can still take control before our own needy suffer the fate of Greece. How we do this is a question for prudential judgment, about which people of good will can differ.

If there was ever a time for serious but respectful discussion, among Catholics as well as those who don’t share our faith, that time is now.

As I go around Southern Wisconsin and visit with Americans across the country explaining that our debt is on track to cripple the economy – and showing people charts and graphs to back it up – they often ask, is it too late to save America from a diminished future? Is the American Experiment over?

It’s a difficult question. It’s one that gives me pause. Frankly, it’s one that keeps me up at night.

But the honest answer is the one I’m about to give to you: Nobody ever got rich betting against the United States of America, and I’m not about to start.

Congressman Paul Ryan is a good and decent man, who can see what you refuse to see, that America is broke and pushing it off until tomorrow only makes tomorrow darker. This Country is a on a precipice of becoming God’s Country once again or taking us into the dark side of totalitarianism and trust me Bishops, there will be no one left to save you, if you do not fight to save America!

  1. Jaded: Thanks for your very excellent post, and for the link to the Ryan speech. I couldn’t find in your post a specific reference to the source of your irritation with the bishops, but I assume it was this:
    https://www.usccb.org/news/2012/12-063.cfm
    I don’t think we have any choice but to stand with them on the freedom of religion/conscience issue, but we don’t have to hug and kiss them, either.
    This may be easy to say as a Protestant, but we are under no compunction to refrain from criticizing the bishops, either singly or as a group or a “conference” for deigning to tell the American people, in the person of it’s government and elected officials, not only what it must do, but even what it should do in it’s fiscal affairs. As Jesus said “Render unto Czesar…”
    This whole enterprise of the bishops, where they have councils on “domestic justice” and councils on “international justice’ I find quite political. Knowing that one can find quotations justifying everything if one wants to, still the phraseology “domestic justice” and “international justice” more likely comes out of some manifesto than it does the Bible.
    But as for the American nation, is is both presumptuous and unnecessary for the bishops to lecture America, the most generous, kind-hearted, socially responsible and respecter of people nation in the history of the world. It is insulting and misdirected.
    As I say, we must stand with the Catholic Church on freedom of religion, but if the boys in the bonnets want to play politics with those of us on the right who DID NOT go into a feeding frenzy like the lefties did over the pedophilia scandals, that can happen, too. We can dredge up a whole generation or two of prelates up and down the Eastern Corridor who looked the other way as certain political dynasties out there violated fundamental church doctrine *en flagrante* and still do to this day.
    If there is somewhere within the conference a “council on economics”, they had better study the economics of dwindling receipts in their tithes and offerings plates associated with state- controlled economies. It doesn’t add up.

    • I have no respect for the Church after this attack Bob, I wanted to fight with them but they are only comfortable with their protective Amendment they have no desire to help me to protect mine, so let them fight it out on their own and I will fight with conservatives to STOP THE MARCH OF SOCIALISM the Catholic Church is helping the Democrats to fulfill!

      Thanks for the link 🙂

      • I will say that it is remarkable that the bishops talk about the Ryan budget in terms of morality. Catholics United flat out states that the Ryan budget is “immoral”. Remember we are talking about fiscal matters here – not the Ten Commandments or any other biblically proscribed behavior, but a budget, and these people are calling it immoral.

        On the other hand, neither the bishops nor Cardinal Dolan use the term “moral”, “morality” or “Immoral” when they chastise Obama for not defending DOMA. They tout the benefits of traditional marriage but they specifically do NOT say Obama is immoral or his policy is immoral.

        • EXACTLY! the Church has allowed for decades the likes of Pelosi and Kerry etc to take the sacrament as they kills babies at will, I hope I am sitting in Heaven watching as the Bishops etc explain that one to God 🙂 The Church has become a social justice machine, they don’t want to pay their “fair” share, they want to keep their dollars while getting governments around the world to TAKE from some citizens to give to other citizens and then they expect a fight from the citizens of the US when the socialists come for them.!
