The Pope on Health Care

This piece is from Kevin Clarke, a writer for U.S. Catholic. It is an article on the Pope's comments on health care and the Tea Party movement that many Catholics have followed. It may also be an opinion piece, because it is laden with "opinion-like" comments, but I'll let you interpret as you like.

[UPDATE: The comments come from the 25th International Conference of the Pontifical Council for Health Care Ministry at the Vatican Nov. 18-19. Here is a more official story.]

  1. Just a general observation I wanted to throw out there. It seems in a lot of the articles I've read there is a tendency to group those are opposed to the current health care bill with those opposed to universal health care. I side with the Catholic bishops in that I am opposed to the current health care program due to its inclusion of federally funded abortions, but agree that providing universal health care for all members of society is needed.
