There is no prospect of people going hungry, or being deported unjustly; the federal money that has been allocated to serve the poor will still be out there — but it will be sluiced through different channels. Any given church that holds fast to traditional teaching, if it wants to feed the poor or engage in community organizing, will have to use its own (tax-exempt) money to do so.
Groups like Catholic Charities will have to draw closer to the Church and look to the laity for donations. The laity, in turn, will have to step up, giving as they never have before. MORE
