Congressman Paul Ryan claims his views are in agreement with
Catholic Social Teaching.
Nonsense.His "Bible" is the collection of writings from the Social
Philosopher Ayn Rand
who is best known for her promotion of what she
terms "the virtue of selfishness," Catholic social teaching certainly promotes the dignity of work but at the expense of
basic living needs. Such cuts are grossly immoral and need
condemnation from Catholic and other leaders.
