the issue that matters
By Diogenes ( articles ) | May 09, 2005
Let's suppose a bill was introduced in your state legislature, making it easier for victims of accounting fraud to file lawsuits and recover damages. Do you suppose your bishop would get involved? Do you suppose he'd write to all the clergy of the diocese, explaining that the bill "should be of serious concern to all of us," and noting that "hastily amended" legislation is a bad idea?
You think not? But doesn't the Church care about accounting fraud?
OK, let's take another case. Suppose the legislation made it easier for parent to sue the manufacturers of defective playground equipment when children were hurt. Then would the diocese weigh in?
Am I getting warmer?
