I like this piece, Carl. I have been debating the "Ryan vs. Catholic Social Teaching" issue with various people on Facebook lately, and it always comes down to this: "I [liberal person] think Catholic Social Teaching means thus-and-such [usually a Democratic program], therefore Ryan is wrong" vs. my argument, which is always, "Catholic Social Teaching is a body of principles, there are different ways to apply them and still be Catholic, and I don't see anything about Ryan's explanations that make me think his application of those principles is not Catholic." We never get to the "is the way Ryan applies the principles practical and/or will it work at all?" question because none of them have ever accepted my point.
