I guess they didn't get the memo, Republicans are against social justice.

The effects of Supply-Side Jesus on the poor is missionary outreach and food kitchens. The result is fat poor people. think about that dichotomy supply-side subby.

And the only reason they're not still against Catholics is that they see eye to eye on abortion and gays.

I love these nuns. That they are doing this after the Vatican scolded American nuns for spending too much time on social justice rather then fighting abortion is farking awesome.

I look forward to sharing this with my right wing Catholic friends on Facebook.
That is if Facebook will still load after visiting Fark. I've been getting certificate errors, http 400 errors, etc, etc, after visiting Facebook directly after Fark.com.
It's became an obvious pattern.

So you're saying that charities or "the market" aren't the best vehicles for feeding the poor?

Are you advocating that they should be fed via...a government program, perhaps?

FTA: "Those policies, Campbell told ThinkProgress, show that Romney "doesn't have clue" about the struggles the poor face."

Apparently these self-riteous nuns didn't hear the stories about how young Mr. and Mrs. Romney survived the early 70's, surviving on nothing but the profits from the sale of his vast securities holdings!! Stupid poors!

Bootstrappery!

You are such a disappointing pair. I prayed so hard for you. It saddens and hurts me that the two young men whom I raised to believe in the Ten Commandments have returned to me as two thieves, with filthy mouths and bad attitudes. Get out, and don't come back until you've redeemed yourselves.

No, government programs would leave them literally starving. But everyone would be starving and that would please the OWS crowd. It's an obesity cure but giving the 99%ers rickets and dysentery isn't very progressive. We of course know that creating class warfare is more important than improving the lives of people, so look to the government to get involved in a way that makes private charities want to leave .

Suppy side economics has created the wealth that charity lives on. Government does not.

FTFA: Romney has endorsed the House GOP budget plan authored by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI). It was that plan, which includes deep cuts to food stamps and other safety net programs that benefit the middle class, that NETWORK's Nuns On A Bus tour targeted, with Campbell and other sisters blasting it as "immoral" at the tour's conclusion in Washington D.C.

I don't see what these crazy nuns are getting all upset about. Any true Christian knows that the real purpose of charity is to make needy people come begging to you for help so that you can use your position of power to try and convert them. Government programs that help the poor are bad because not only do they not try to make people accept Jesus, but they make poor people less desperate, and less desperate poor people might not be forced to sit through prayers or sermons in order to eat. Even worse, it means that churches don't get as big a PR boost from doing charitable work, which hurts their attempts at saving souls even more.

Feeding people just for the sake of feeding people is a worldly distraction from evangelism - the duty of every true Christian. Jesus commanded us to feed the hungry so that we'd have an opportunity to save them. If we have to make to poor suffer a little more so that they'll come crawling to us willing to pray a prayer that will keep their souls out of hell, the extra suffering absolutely worth it.

Met Sister Simone Campbell at a training/lobbying event for Bread for the World in D.C. She gives this amazing speech/sermon, spends a couple hours talking with all of us (about 70 people), then, around 11 p.m. pedals off on her bicycle.

So before there was government welfare there were no hungry people in the US? Private charity ensured that all children were adequately fed, clothed and housed?

Supply side has also created more poor people that need charity. Poor people have also existed in varying numbers even before supply-side economics was being dismissed by HW Bush in the late 70s as "voodoo economics". It's almost like poor people exist regardless of how much deference we show rich people in the tax code.

I'll tell you one thing, though - we always get an idea of how much tax revenue to Feds get, how much gets spent on federal poverty/hunger programs, and how much actually goes to help needy people. I know there are disclosure rules for some charities and donors, but nowhere near as exhaustive. So we get better auditing (though not necessarily better results - if they had to disclose what the feds do, we might know) from government services, too.

It's here that I like to go off on a tangent about fact/value distinction. I can communicate with people who understand that lowering taxes on the rich and gutting safety-net programs will make life miserable for many people, but who are still in favor cuts to social programs because they have a value system in which a person's right to property is more important than the lives of the people around him, or in which "self-determination" is such a moral good that the risk of malnutrition should not enter into consideration. I might not think that such a person is a good human being, but we're at least operating from a common set of facts, despite our differing values.

On the other hand, I have a great deal of difficulty communicating with someone who looks at society in the last two centuries and argues that social programs actually hurt the poor, or that cuts to environmental regulation will make us healthier, or that cutting taxes for rich people will lead to more economic prosperity for everyone. I can deal with differing values, but when facts get re-written in service of those differing values, we're going to have problems.

Love, love, love that woman. She is a living example of what it is to be a good person and have your priorities straight. I wish she would break with the Catholic church and start her own religion! (If more Catholic leaders were like her, I might not have left the church the instant I turned 18.)

Sadly, I am pretty certain that Rmoney won't accept her offer.

No, that was right after the second miracle, when Jesus healed one man's blindness with tax cuts.

Sometimes you just gotta ask, and sometimes you just get it for some unknown reason. This week alone I got BIE because I asked and someone sponsored me for TF in spite of the fact that I vehemently disagree with almost everything he or she has posted and on the off chance that I respond to him or her, it's purely to be insulting and derogatory. Fark works in mysterious ways.

You're aware he's not getting a shoe shine, right? You realize that's just a security wand thingie.

I know it's a popular picture, but I sometimes go long periods of time without farking, so I don't know if that fact has already been established and people just don't give a shiat... or whatever.

Im not by any means a tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy theorist but damn I cannot believe the Republican Party leadership was too stupid to see this all coming and either get Romney out of the game or deal with these issues before the primaries. It is almost like someone is paying him to take a dive. "You make speeches and look good till about September then take a fall there Romney" Did they really believe the issue of his tax returns would just be forgotten? etc etc etc

No, before there were industrialists and rich people, the government didn't care and the only people that fed, clothed and housed children were private charities. The government didn't school them either.
