CNS STORY: Poor may lack ‘powerful lobbies’ but have ‘greatest needs,’ bishop says

“It would be unjust and unwise to fail to renew improvements and extensions of low-income tax credits as the Congress addresses tax cuts for middle-income and wealthy Americans,” said Bishops Stephen E. Blaire of Stockton, Calif., the committee’s chairman, in a July 25 letter addressed to members of the Senate.

“Poor working families and their children may not have the most powerful lobbies, but they have the greatest needs and the most compelling claim,” he said.

Really? This banality is the best the head of the U.S. bishops’ Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development can come up with? Restatements of the obvious? Platitudes?

I suppose this piss poor crap is what passes for a social justice stance from the males of the Catholic church these days. Wimpy useless piousness at its most effective.
