If you’ve been paying attention lately to some priests and bishops, you might think that Congressman Paul Ryan had been caught beating old women, kicking dogs, and cutting in front of your kids in the cafeteria line.

This lunacy has everything to do with Ryan’s budget which is hardly draconian but actually deals with the issue of the insanely high deficits we’re running to fund this ongoing party we’re throwing ourselves.

I have to wonder where’s the USCCB press release on the immorality of putting our grandchildren in debt?

Bishop Morlino is Paul Ryan’s bishop and he said in this video from EWTN that Ryan is “a fine Catholic gnetleman.” He said he trusts Ryan and he’s a “very responsible lay Catholic” and “makes his judgement very much in accord with all the teachings of the Church.”

I, for one, am very glad to see this.

The part pertaining to Ryan starts at about 3:45 seconds in.
