Can you please explain to me why you think that a private institution needs to explain why it updates it's website, adding, changing, and deleting information as it sees fit?
Hello, people update websites and URLs all the time.
Why is this "sad"? Why do you believe this is "all" you are left with? Are you not aware that all of the documents related to the Church's social teaching are available on the Vatican's website AND-- gasp-- in actual books?
What the heck are you talking about?
1ke, have you ever needed a quick reference on something, and were unable to find it..?
Let me explain... I was on another thread where CCC 2406 (Political authority has the right and duty to regulate the legitimate exercise of the right to ownership for the sake of the common good), was used in attempt to claim that one has no right to property ownership... That it is not a "right" that any Catholic in good standing can argue for.... It was stated in fact that Catholics have no right to ANYTHING at all outside our duties which include "a duty to preserve your own life, to care for your family, to obey authority, and to worship God".
Now I was trying to find something that I saw before where the Church DOES state that property ownership (such as home ownership) is a right that the Catholic Church acknowledges. I saw it on the site I mentioned in the beginning... I will look for it after I post this...
But besides this 1ke, you claim that "all of the documents related to the Church's social teaching are available on the Vatican's website AND-- gasp-- in actual books". HAH! Everyone knows this. But when the USCCB posts their personal "picks" from the long list of documents -it tends to appeal towards a particular focus -charity towards those in need.
But I'm not looking for charity towards the poor. I'm looking in particular for what I should expect from my government for all the people... Not just the less fortunate.
