A new Catholic labor blog worth watching

 |  NCR Today

Bill Lange, a long time Milwaukee Catholic labor activist has started a blog. Those interested in progressive Catholic social justice issues might be well served to keep an eye on it.

Lange writes:

Let me relate some of the many reasons I am doing this blog. First: the Labor Movement and the Faith Community can have a greater political impact for justice with a combined effort. Second: to show the path to reconciliation of positions if there is conflict between them such as the wedge issues of abortion, gay rights, and stem cell research. Third: A valuable contribution of the Encyclicals is that they establish the ‘why’ of an economic system and the ‘how’ follows. Contemporary economics assumes the ‘why’ as a given with little comment.
