An independent and grassroots forum for reflection, dialogue, and the
exchange of ideas within the Catholic community of Minnesota and beyond
Thanks Sr. Simone Campbell for promoting a vision of the Catholic faith that prizes its social justice tradition as one of its greatest treasures. Care for the least among us should exemplify who we are as a church, while simultaneously highlighting our collective conscience as a nation to the world. What's the point of being "pro-life" if you forget about that life after its left the womb?! Forget about any other categories, NUNS do it better!
The more our government taxes, the less people are willing to give to charity. I am a strong believer that everyone should tithe 10% of their income. with less income, there's less charity. We must not focus on forcing money out of the wealthy, but make them feel obligated to give to welfare programs and organizations. The better they feel about giving, the more they give. Who likes doing something when it's absolutely forced upon them? Spreading the "volunteerism" vibe would reduce the dead weight Loss caused by taxes.
Charity is one thing but, to not be able to wholly condemn abortion as a woman religious is another. "Sister" Simone simply played lip service to the culture of death.
Sister Somone...stands against God, Israel and the sanctity of life, look where she was..as far as charity compare Romney's charity to President Obama and throw in Biden's. face the fact that it is business that keeps the soup kitchens going...or the fact the greatest givers bar none, corporations...the greatest givers to charity are conservatives....Sister Simone should be in a Burka...it would do her good...Mother Teresa would never have been dolted into this arena
and i forgot....she has no sense in economics...look lady it is the spending that is the problem not the revenue...you really want to give these people more money? have you lost your mind? is she aware of the cuts the Health Care Act does to Medicare....my doctor has dropped all of us....i am now looking at changing plans and medical care and the game has not officially begun
