Posted by: ColmCille - Apr. 28, 2012 3:15 AM ET USA It is these academics who don't understand subsidiarity, nor theGospel. It is NOT beyond the means of communities to provide forthe poor, if you reduce the tax burden, giving people theopportunity to freely donate to organizations who can help in adirect, personal way, and thus everyone gains in merit andincreases in holiness. Instead, the poor are held hostage toinefficient and impersonal government programs, while taxpayers areforced to pay for it. |
Which sounds more Gospel values? Posted by: chasann113163 - Apr. 26, 2012 8:05 AM ET USA Just proof that we need to take back our Catholic schools. Yes, IfI had my way I would make Abortion Illegal, it is a principal ourreligion stands firm on. Catholic schools and universities shouldreflect our faith. Posted by: impossible - Apr.
25, 2012 11:10 PM ET USA Georgetown and Notre Dame have no standing to make pronouncementsor objections as to Catholic matters. They have disqualifiedthemselves. Those who cherry pick from social justice encyclicalsto support their left wing ideology cease to be educators butreveal themselves as nothing more than political ideologues. PaulRyan's theology on these matters is in line with the Magisteriumwhich Georgetown apparently disdains. Posted by: sarsok8679 - Apr.
25, 2012 10:29 PM ET USA As it is with leftists, they seem to think that Charity begins withgovernment and the Church is just another government agency. Iwould bet that what these faculty members give to real charities issubstantially less per capita of what Paul Ryan gives, because theyfeel their charity giving should go to the government.When theyface the Lord someday and he asks what did you do to feed my lambs,I don't think telling Him, "I paid my taxes", will resonate! Posted by: unum - Apr. 25, 2012 6:48 PM ET USA It appears that Rep. Ryan's hopes for a thoughtful dialogue arewasted on the Georgetown faculty as indicated by their medium ofcommunication, The Huffington Post.
Georgetown is an institutionalembarrassment to all faithful Catholics. Posted by: John J Plick - Apr. 25, 2012 6:12 PM ET USA It is not what "they" are afraid of. It is an effort to intimidatethe speaker into compromise or even capitulation. Pray forRepresentative Ryan.
Posted by: jacobtoo - Apr. 25, 2012 4:28 PM ET USA Does Rep. Ryan want to make abortion illegal again? Posted by: spledant7672 - Apr. 25, 2012 11:23 AM ET USA What I always wonder about these group letters and/or protestsprior to lectures at universities is, why the need for a preemptoryopposition? Why not just listen and then offer a consideredresponse? What are they afraid of? Posted by: Frodo1945 - Apr.
25, 2012 9:58 AM ET USA These critics of Ryan are firm believers in the nanny state buthave given no thought to who will pay for their big governmentprograms. Piling massive debt onto our children doesn't seem tobother them. Well, it bothers me. Posted by: Adeodatus109 - Apr. 25, 2012 9:46 AM ET USA I'm pretty sure Ryan has better reading comprehension than these"academics." A reading of Centesimus annus 48 proves that Ryanwins, these liberals lose.
