Texas bishop joins budget-cut protest

Catholic World News - April 07, 2011

Bishop Michael Mulvey of Corpus Christi joined a protest against tax cuts at the Texas state house on April 6.

"We want to see a balanced approach with a clear priority for vulnerable citizens and new sources of revenue," said the bishop. Rather than cutting programs, he said that legislators should “create new sources of revenue.”

    When I hear or read about a Bishop giving advice to politicians about temporal matters, my thoughts naturally go to what the particular bishop has said, done or left unsaid or undone about things within their competence - like teaching and preaching the truth about Humanae Vitae, and sound catechetics and passing on the deposit of faith given to us by their successors, the Apostles.

    "Charity" by taxation is nothing more than theft via the ballot box, legislative, and administrative fiat. The fruit of this governmental largess is multigenerational dependency and institutionalized failure. I do not know how to fix the problem, it is clear that the social programs are not working.
