In what has to be the stupidest bit of commentary on the budget deal so far, Markos “kos” Moulitsas suggested that Speaker of the House John Boehner should be denied communion because he “ignored the church’ with his Debt deal.
John Boehner, Catholic, is displeasing the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.
A just framework for future budgets cannot rely on disproportionate cuts in essential services to poor persons. It requires shared sacrifice by all, including raising adequate revenues, eliminating unnecessary military and other spending, and addressing the long-term costs of health insurance and retirement programs fairly.
Given he’s ignoring the church on this matter, will he be denied communion?
Isn’t it funny how lefties like Moulitsas ignore actual Church doctrine but transform the liberal rantings of a few at the USCCB into infallible dogma?
Everytime the USCCB releases an asinine political statement such as the one cited by Moulitsas, they only serve to obfuscate the real truth. They also make themselves tools of the left, which I am sure some are ok with.
Sorry Markos, Nancy Pelosi should be denied communion for her public obstinancy but you cannot make the case that Boehner should be denied communion over this debt deal. His speakership, maybe. But not communion.
