  •  The Catholic church needs poverty to survive (8+ / 0-)

    That's why they will never put any political clout behind anti poverty measures. With poverty comes an uneducated, vulnerable society, one that relies on church run food banks and homeless shelters. If society were to actually tackle poverty, the church would shrivel up and die. Look at the more prosperous countries in Europe. Church membership is in freefall there. Once the daily fear of existence is removed and people feel secure, they leave religion in the dustbin of history.
    And the is the same reason the Republican party is against federal aid to the poor.
