On the difference between charity and welfare…
The reason the Catholic Church, all the way back to the days of FDR, got roped into the liberal/socialist agenda is that they became convinced that welfare was charity. And churches are big on charity. And they thought that it would sound good for them to support massive government wealth transfer programs – welfare programs – under the guise that it was charity. And so the Catholic Church and its hierarchy in this country slowly but surely migrated to socialism, in terms of its political preferences… under the notion that liberalism is charity, under the notion that welfare is charity. Well it isn’t. Welfare is the willful absconding of money owned by others and giving it to other people, for your benefit, not theirs. Liberals give money to people, wanting a payback. The payback’s the vote.
