A very nice post by Monsignor Pope where he also goes back in the comments. An example of good civil Catholic discussion. See A Request for Your Input on How We Should Address the Deficit and Debt
The issue is of course much bigger than any particular budget as I think Monsignor Pope is trying to get at . Many will be proposed and calling out Catholics of good faith on many issues of economics and fiscal problems relating to the budget as it relates to Catholic Social Justice is just going to be counterproductive. I like the the discussion that is had there in all 113 comments.
