First let me state plainly that there are decent people and yes, sincere Catholics who do favor liberalism in terms of government intervention in matters of charity. We saw many of these people befuddled last year about the Obama Hell Bill. They honestly believe that the Hell bill would be wonderful if only abortion were expunged from it. They do not understand that even if it forbade abortion, it would still be inherently immoral. However, sincere those these Catholics are, they are simply wrong about this brand of liberalism and their sincerety will not mitigate the harmful effects of their errors.
A few years ago, I had occasion to write about the Maryland Catholic Conference's dalliance with such errors. Read the piece here, and please make sure you read the offending article on the MCC web page to which my piece links.
I will be writing more on these matters in the future. For now, I will leave you with this Vortex. Click here if you cannot see embedded video.
