Cardinal Dolan’s Paul Ryan Problem

posted on September 5, 2012

At The New Republic, Amy Sullivan writes on the issues between the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and Paul Ryan, whose policies have been criticized by progressive Catholics for violating the church’s social teaching. Sullivan writes that Catholic leaders have been quick to criticize Catholic Democrats “if their voting records or public statements or policy proposals come into conflict with church teaching.” She notes, “It is not unreasonable to ask if Catholic bishops are playing favorites if they are content to sit back and let the GOP vice presidential nominee proudly call himself a Catholic and attempt to square his positions with church teaching while taking stands that are at odds with that teaching.”
