Universal health care, opposition to the death penalty, moral objections to preventive war: it’s all here, reinforcing a point I’ve made before in our comment battles about how Christianity has always seemed more liberal to me in substance than conservative. I’ve been derided for my supposed ignorance in taking that position but tell it to the bishops.

May I offer you paragraph 83?

As No More Spin says, good luck squaring that last sentence with what precedes it. Before the left celebrates divine victory, though, I’d urge our readers one and all to follow the link to the document and read the following five paragraphs: 22-23 and 34-36 (especially 35). If Catholic voters took this to heart, there’d be nary a Democrat elected throughout the land.
