This article is bunk.
Actually, no. That was MIchaelTArchangel in post #9.
I think we're both arguing with him through each other. My apologies for misunderstanding your position.
I refuse to play this stupid ga
I am a Catholic.
I don't care if it is or not.
Who dreams up these stupid questions? Must be the loser trolls, attempting to create distractions any way they can.
The context of this article is absurd. The government has become a massively corrupt, lawless, cleptocracy. Bankers who broke criminal law are able to demand trillion-dollar bailouts instead of receiving jail time. These criminals are still at large gobbling up the economy and corrupting politics. What does social teaching say about taking sides with law-breakers?
The TEA Party publicly embraces the traditional American ideology, with all its associated positives and negatives (mostly positive I think). However, the movement is really about shifting power back to the displaced and abused majority.
Catholics have the moral responsibility (and enlightened self-interest) of siding with law-abiding fellow Americans against the criminal and anti-Catholic elite.
There fixed it
It says protect not run or mandate
Is the post Vatican II Catholic clergy in sync with Catholic teaching of the prior 1900 years? NO!
Forget the Tea Party, first things first. The Progressivists Catholic clergy's nouvelle post-Vatican II church has to be brought back in sync with Catholicism, returned to the true faith and sacred doctrines of 1900 years.
Maybe you don't think that is what you said, but you really did, intnetioanlly or not. There are at least of on this list that read it exactly that way.
Maybe you want to take about half a step back and a deep breath and re-read it very carefully.
Of course, but the important question is: what are those duties? The Declaration of Independence says that governments are instituted to secure unalienable rights. So does the church and do the tea parties.
