Behind the times?

Zenit: Prelate Calls for Equitable, Human Health Care
CNS: Pope, church leaders call for guaranteed health care for all people

Reasoning based on an unsustainable economic paradigm.

PCI: Straight Talk with James Howard Kunstler: "The World is Going to Get Rounder and Bigger Again"
The peak oil crisis: Did we vote ourselves to extinction?

I don't expect clerics to be politicians or political economists or theorists; I do expect them to defend the Natural Law. At least there is no reiteration of the claim that health care is a right? Still, the Vatican needs someone studying peak oil and its impact on global society and writing a report for those who still assume that the modern welfare state can be continued indefinitely.
