This blog started out as a companion piece to my book, Musings from the Christian Left (excerpts of which can be found in the July 2004 link) and to support a planned radio show. Now, its simply a long term writing project from a Christian Left Libertarian perspective (meaning I often argue for liberty within the (Catholic) Church, rather than liberty because the church takes care of a conservative view of morality.

USCCB In Disarray | National Catholic Reporter

USCCB In Disarray | National Catholic Reporter by MSW.  MGB: It is hard to try to say something about the poor when you enjoy breaking bread with the rich, many of whom would be miffed if a solid document were written that effectively dealt with the question of what the state should do to ameliorate poverty and assure a living wage.  Of course, it is hard to talk about such wages when one does not necessarily pay them.  God sheds a tear whenever anyone in the clergy tells someone in their employer who needs a higher salary to fund yet another child that they should try Natural Family Planning.    We need a strong document that deals with wealth, charity and the need for obligatory matters done by the state.  More importantly, bishops need to set an example with how they actually run their diocese.
