The good bishop on his Harley Davidson:
Yes, our bishops supported this monstrosity but without the abortion coverage. How is this good new?

When he says it’s not accessible to everybody, who is he refer to it not being accessible for?
I am so happy that Miami finally has a good, courageous archbishop. Things were dismal there for so long. And a dismal Miami affects the entire rest of the state, even though Florida is a very large state territorially and has what I think of as several different geographical cultural zones.
St Augustine was the only diocese for non-Panhandle Florida until the creation of the Miami diocese in the ’50s, and since then, numerous other dioceses have been formed. While St Augustine is still large in terms of area, it is small in terms of Catholic population. Unfortunately, after the breakup of the St Augustine diocese, Miami never really became the leader it should be. Maybe Apb Wenski will change that.
What is this bishop even talking about? “Basically we have said that health care reform means that it should be accessible to everybody and nobody should be killed.” What?! Is he even aware that it is illegal to refuse treatment to someone if they can make it to the hospital? I’m so sick of these progressive bishops who support socialism (in the beginning stage as “health care reform”) in the name of “social justice.” What a crock!
My question should have read who is he reffering to it not being accessible for? I wonder if when people make statements like this they are reffering to illegal immigrants maybe? or am I missing something?
Elly, not only immigrants, but people like myself who have had cancer, who very well may not be covered by the present bill, which I am, of course, completely against. So-called high risk patients, including people with health issues and older people, as well as some young ones with serious health problems, may well be not included as too expensive. http://www.kaiserhealthnews.org/Stories/2010/June/22/health-law-insurance-regulations-shorttake.aspx and http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/mar/22/us-healthcare-bill-illegal-immigrants may help.
illegal immigrants-sorry, not all immigrants
Do Catholics ever still read Rerum Novarum et seq.? The distinction between socialism and a social program of a government is not really that fine a point. Socialism is a form of command economy. There are very few socialist economies on earth, and mostly they’re in terrible shape.
It’s funny–the down economy of Boston in the late ’80s and early 90s was loaded with illegal Irish immigrants working mostly in construction and hospitality jobs. There really wasn’t the hew and cry against them that there is now. I really wonder if racism and xenophobia of foreign languages aren’t really at the root of current anti-immigration sentiment.
To be clear, because apparently I didn’t format it correctly or some fancy code-stripper is operating here, my quotation runs from “From Econopedia.com” for three paragraphs to “Most economies of the world are mixed economies,” and my own thoughts resume with “It’s funny.”
