    there is no point to it beyond trying to turn the tables on your hated ideological enemies to take some of the heat off your own kind.

    Exactly right.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Yeah so? Are not Catholic Universities, and Hospitals under the direction of the Church? You can no more divorce the doctrine from Notre Dame from the Church, than you can Obama from Rev. Wright.....doh.

    No. Most often they hire administrators, not clergy. So they are not in any churches or equivilent.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Are you saying that Notre Dame for example is not under the direction of the Catholic Church?

    PS. Just so you know, here is what the Pope had to say on the issue...

    Pope Benedict XVI, himself a former university professor, made his position clear when he spoke to Catholic educators in Washington, D.C., on April 17, 2008:

    Teachers and administrators, whether in universities or schools, have the duty and privilege to ensure that students receive instruction in Catholic doctrine and practice. This requires that public witness to the way of Christ, as found in the Gospel and upheld by the Church’s magisterium, shapes all aspects of an institution’s life, both inside and outside the classroom.

    But I don't buy the comparison to what Maher and others have done. The public/private figure distinction is legitimate, and Maher's worst comments came in his stand-up routine and not during his semi-comedy-semi-political show.
    That's because he won't be bleeped.

    "Since 1967, Notre Dame has been governed by a Board of Trustees, and not directly by the leadership of Holy Cross. The university is governed by two groups, the Board of Fellows and the Board of Trustees.[14] The Fellows of the University are a group of six Holy Cross religious and six lay members who have final say over the operation of the university. The fellows vote on potential Trustees and sign off on all major decisions by that body. The trustees select the president from the United States Province of the Congregation of Holy Cross. In addition to the president, these groups help to maintain the bylaws and elect other officers of the university.[15] Finally, the provost of the university, currently Dr. Thomas Burish, works under the president to oversee many of the academic activities and functions of the university."
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Here, I'll even use a source you can respect....

    Chicago Archbishop Cardinal Francis George on Sunday threatened that, because the Catholic Church "is being told she must 'give up'" its religious freedom in response to the Obama administration's birth control mandate, Catholic institutions such as hospitals and universities may face no other option but to close down.
