No, really. You have the word from Virginia's Ken Cuccinelli, the tea-stained AG who went on a personal and political rampage against the Affordable Care Act. Now he's out to push Catholics over the radical Republican cliff.
In a little-noticed September speech at the Cherish Life Ministries Christian Life Summit, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II (R), the state Republican Party’s apparent choice for governor in 2013, took aim at the Catholic Church for its advocacy on behalf of the poor, immigrants, and the uninsured. Because the Church’s leadership has advocated for the government to provide a social safety net, a role he believes is the responsibility of the Catholic Church itself, Cuccinelli said, “they have made themselves out to be nothing but the largest special interest group in America.” ...Think Progress
Of course, "humanitarians" have to concede that Cuccinelli makes a good point. The bottom line is, if you go around noticing poor people in America (the idea is ridiculous), we all have to pay for it. Why should we pay for slackers and idiots who don't know how to put a home -- or even a meal -- together? Obviously the Church deserves more than a slap on the wrist for this nonsense.
