I just came across this comment by Archbishop Charles Chaput in an interview at the National Catholic Register:
So, if I understand the archbishop, he is saying that if the ACA had been overturned, leaving more than 30 million of his fellow citizens without any prospect of getting health insurance, that would be a fine outcome because then the lawsuits filed against the HHS mandate would be unnecessary?
Hmmmmm. Getting to pull a lawsuit on the one hand. Health insurance for 30 million people, mostly the working poor on the other hand. Not much of a choice if you ask me. There is something eerily narcissistic in Abp Chaput's comments, which are also quite different from the statement issued by the USCCB. He should withdraw his comments or lay down the miter and apply to be head of a pro-GOP SuperPAC. If he continues to both, he will only eat away at what little moral authority he still has.
