Our friends at Vox Nova highlight a recent statement by the Irish bishops on that nation's economic woes. I think the headline, "The Irish Church is Back" may be a bit premature. The Irish Bishops remain horribly compromised by the sex abuse scandal that they are only just beginning to wrap their hearts and minds around. But, their statement on the economy is a prophetic witness to Christian belief in the face of economic hardships. What a shame that they are so morally compromised at this moment that this statement may not get the hearing it deserves.
