Catholic group criticizes Paul Ryan - Politico

Cardinal Dolan weighing in on Republican's devasting policies for the poor -
guess whose side he's on?

Just compare the two quotes.

From the Catholic group "Faith in Public Life":

“Simply put, this budget is morally indefensible and betrays Catholic principles of solidarity, just taxation and a commitment to the common good. A budget that turns its back on the hungry, the elderly and the sick while giving more tax breaks to the wealthiest few can’t be justified in Christian terms...”

and Dolan:

"...commending the Wisconsin Republicans’ “continued attention” to Catholic social justice “in the current delicate budget considerations in Congress,” and praising his attention to fiscal responsibility, the role of the family, the dignity of human life and attention to the poor."

Just asking...

Since when does a righteous moral stance require consideration of "delicate budget considerations"?

Which statement could you hear coming out of Jesus's mouth?
