To: Mrs. Don-o
Very well said, thank you.

In secular, prudential judgments, the bishop does not represent the Church and does not speak for the Church. He has a right to his own opinion, like anyone with a brain; his own dollar, like anyone in the market; his own vote, like any citizen.

To the point of the discussion, which was the procurement of healthcare services and the political ramifications thereof, my position is that the Bishop speaks for himself only.

Yah. Broad outline: “Care for the sick” is right up here as an overall moral requirement; how to go about that, is a prudential judgment.
