Archbishop Naumann wants—and demonstrates—clarity on Catholic social teaching
CWN - June 29, 2012
In a noteworthy interview with Catholic World Report, Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City, Kansas, offers remarkably candid thoughts on religious freedom and the US bishops’ conflict with the Obama administration.
The archbishop goes on to speak with equal candor about the US bishops’ statements on economic affairs and his own determination to recover an appreciation for the principle of subsidiarity. Similarly, he argues that the term “social justice” should not be automatically linked to a statist political agenda.
