Sunday Snippets — A Catholic Carnival (Vol. 14:2)

Welcome to The Impractical Catholic ... although, given the recent predominance of a particular subject, it tends to read more like "The Armchair Economist".

Today is Sunday, which means another episode of "Sunday Snippets — A Catholic Carnival", hosted by RAnn at This, That and the Other Thing. If you're a Catholic blogmaster looking for an outlet, here's how we play the game: First, you write a post with links to things you've written over the last week; be sure to give it the "Sunday Snippets" title and link to RAnn's weekly post. Then hit the "Publish" button and copy the link; go over to RAnn's post, and use the Inlinkz function to add your link to the rest. 

While you're there, write a nice note to RAnn thanking her. Also, while you're there, check out the links to the other Catholic writers participating. You see, they're in the main new or obscure, just waiting to take the Catholic blogosphere by storm; and they need you to go tell other people in Netland that they're out there and deserve to be read.

So what did I do this week? Well, I wrote a lot about income inequality ... or, to be more accurate, I wrote a lot about what other people wrote about income inequality. This week actually saw two posts on Outside the Asylum: "Catholics can't have 'designated sinners'", in which I take the Obama Administration and the New York Times to task over the persecution of the Little Sisters of the Poor; and "What's the problem with income inequality?", in which I endeavor to demonstrate that the "wealth gap" is a problem not just for the poor but for the rich as well. By contrast, there was only one other post besides this one on The Impractical Catholic: "Cutting taxes doesn't work", in which I tear apart a favorite conservative cure-all for economic sluggishness.

And there you have it. Now go get your Catholic reading on! Have a great Sunday!
