This is a hatchet job from a avowedly Godless organization, aimed at sliming Bishop Paprocki as some kind of disreputable wingnut for having the temerity to push back against Catholicism's left wing and for backing Pope Benedict against left-leaning orders of nuns. Downding.

This is a hatchet job from a avowedly Godless organization,

There's nothing wrong with being avowedly Godless, any more than there is with being religious.

aimed at sliming Bishop Paprocki as some kind of disreputable wingnut for having the temerity to push back against Catholicism's left wing and for backing Pope Benedict against left-leaning orders of nuns. Downding.

Nope. It's correctly saying that he's specifically preached against the policies of Democrats, and said there's nothing in the GOP platform that is a sin. Which is an obvious lie.

We need separation of church and state. That means religious organizations have to be responsible, and realize that the protection of all means they don't meddle in politics. Preach your values, don't preach politics.

What religion doesn't behave badly? The whole concept is dishonest from the get-go.

Catholics - conservative Pope John Paul II type Catholics, rag on capitalism and social darwinism as much as they do communism.

But for some reason the right wing American Catholics like Rick Santorum and Paul Ryan embrace the type of social darwinian capitalism the conservative Catholic Church denounces. I would respect the Catholic church more in the USA if it attacked Democrats on social issue and Republicans on economic issues equally.

I say this recognizing the American Catholic church supported Obamacare and does sort of preach against eliminating the safety net (aka welfare system). But the Catholic Church seem more animated about gay rights denial, abortion and contraception (social issues) than economic issues in the USA.

Quite the issue with critical thinking there, kiddo.
