|Pope Paul Ryan|
Of course, Ryan is wrong.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops does speak for ALL U.S. Bishops. In fact, they vote as a group to elect the Bishops who make policy and statements on their behalf.
Ryan himself opened his budget up to such a backlash by claiming his plan was not only good economics but righteously moral to boot and didn't much care for the criticism.
Ryan is one of those guys who thinks he is an authority just because he got close once. He's the country's leading voice on economics because he got a minor in economics from a second rate university, he can dispute the needs of Pentagon Generals because he travel once to Afghanistan and now he alone decides what is moral based on Catholic teachings because he goes to church.
What a complete jackass.
