This is the best explanation of health care by a Catholic Bishop that I have seen. The Catholics of the Diocese of Fargo, are indeed, fortunate!

Catholic Ping!

Yep, we conservatives like our bishop here in Fargo. Word has it he’ll be promoted out of here someday.

There is a danger in being persuaded to think that the national government is the sole instrument of the common good. Rather, according to the classic principle of subsidiarity in Catholic social thought, many different communities within society share this responsibility.

We cannot allow the left to take the moral high ground on health care.

And vague enough to make it open to interpretation by the socialist Catholics, just like almost every pronouncement ever made by the bishops (except for the clearly Leftist pronouncements).

Excellent discussion. The explanation of subsidiarity was especially good.

Much better than the article I read yesterday.
