Michael Savage, Bill Donohue Spar Over Pope’s Ideas on Wealth

Donohue, in the next segment, said Catholicism doesn’t have a formal economic doctrine per se so much as a history — especially under recent popes — of viewing economics through the prism of the neediest. Donohue argued that supporting “progressive taxation” doesn’t disqualify someone from being a “good Catholic.”

But unlike its fixed, unequivocal position on abortion — “intrinsically evil,” Donohue said — the church’s attitudes on wealth and poverty are a matter of emphasis and not doctrine, he said.
