The Nation

November 05, 1986

A proposed bishops' statement on the U.S. economy is confused about economic rights and puts too much emphasis on the state to help the poor, a prominent Roman Catholic lay group said. The critique came a week before the bishops are to take final action on their widely discussed pastoral letter, "Economic Justice for All." Calling the letter one-sided, the Lay Commission on Catholic Social Teaching and the U.S. Economy said the bishops "turn too readily to the state to direct economic activism, to create jobs, to determine foreign aid."
