Catholic leaders to Rep. Paul Ryan: Stop distorting church teaching to justify immoral budget

Faculty members Dr. Paul Lakeland and Dr. Nancy Dallavalle joined prominent theologians, priests and nuns in signing an important statement. Nearly 60 prominent theologians, priests, nuns and national Catholic social justice leaders released a statement today refuting Rep. Paul Ryan’s claim that his GOP budget proposal reflects Catholic teaching on care for the poor, which he made in an interview earlier this week with the Christian Broadcasting Network. The group of Catholic leaders – including a former high-ranking U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops official, a priest in Rep. Ryan’s district and the leadership team of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas – called on Ryan to “reconsider his radical budget proposal and refrain from distorting Church teaching.”
