Life has turned busy again during the opening of the Paschal season and so posts may be a tad scarce around Opus Publicum for a few days. Even so, some recent “discussions” on Facebook brought to mind that while certain Catholics who are by and large orthodox on everything except the Church’s social magisterium are routinely excoriated as hypocrites, the opposite is rarely true. That is to say, certain Catholics who have made it their business to publicly defend, promote, and interpret Catholic social teaching are rarely if ever called to the carpet for holding opinions which are contrary to the Faith. Is that not, too, hypocrisy? What virtue is there in someone claiming to believe in just wages, solidarity, and subsidiarity if they simultaneously reject the physical Resurrection of Christ or the Church’s teaching on contraception? The cafeteria is closed. Nay, it was never open in the first place.
