Catholics and Health Care

I have read Archbishop Chaput and trust him impeccably (especially when it comes to the life issue). He is very spiritual, very knowledgeable, and very easy to understand. A rare combination:

"The Resurrection, coming on the heels of a very unpleasant execution, is not an easily tamed story. And exactly that story---the fact of Jesus Christ's crucifixion and resurrection from the dead---is the starting point, the source, the seed that became the faith, the moral code, the sense of human dignity, the culture, and the civilization we now take for granted every day." ---Render Unto Caesar: Serving the Nation by Living our Catholic Beliefs in Political Life by Archbishop Charles Chaput

Read his most recent column on Catholics, Health Care, and the Senates's Bad Bill here:

"Do not be misled. The Senate version of health-care reform currently being pushed ahead by congressional leaders and the White House -- despite public resistance and numerous moral concerns -- is bad law; and not simply bad, but dangerous. It does not deserve, nor does it have, the support of the Catholic bishops in our country, who speak for the believing Catholic community. In its current content, the Senate version of health-care legislation is not “reform.” Catholics and other persons of good will concerned about the foundations of human dignity should oppose it." ~ Archbishop Chaput
