Papal encyclical may be "naïve or dumb"

Says this guy, bemoaning all that Catholic "peace and justice" crap.

h/t Former Marquette law school "alum blogger of the month" Daniel Suhr, who is concerned that some actual teachings of Jesus Christ might have inadvertently contaminated Herr Ratzinger's otherwise infallible commitment to free market capitalism and union busting.

George Weigel is pretty solidly in the Catholic camp. I don't think he's bemoaning "all that Catholic 'peace and justice' crap". It's obvious he's reading the encyclical Caritas in Veritate with a critical eye, but there is nothing wrong with that. I have to be honest, I haven't read any of the big guys encyclicals ... too busy trying to keep my ass from getting fired here at work, so I can't tell whether Weigel is on target or not.
