We published this editorial nineteen months ago on September 26, 2008. Today, the Securities and Exchange Commission charged Goldman Sachs with securities fraud for allegedly misleading investors about a mortgage security it sold to them while betting against that same product.
Thanks for that. It is amazing how far the Church (in the form of some of its officials and parishioners) has drifted from its roots. It parallels is some ways the distance the U.S. has drifted from its Constitution.
First of all, we admire the Catholic Church and have no anti-Catholic bias.
Second, the Church has pushed strongly for universal healthcare run by government and is now aggressively pushing amnesty for illegals.
The point of the article is that although the Church objected to federal funding for abortion, it tried to implement healthcare “reform” through a fatally flawed President, and the result is federally-funded abortion.
