The Catholic Church has for some time sided with collectivism that goes by the name of social justice. Many of the clergy bought into this idea and by doing so have supplanted individual virtue with collective virtue. The forced charity through government is taking the place of voluntary charity by the individual. Where charity is forced, there is no virtue.
Obama is on record as saying that his individual salvation rests on the collective salvation of the country. If so then I need not do anything to be saved for if the country is "saved" then I am saved. Beyond the Catholic church many Christians have bought into this social justice and collective salvation nonsense. It is a way of justifying forcibly taking the property of others.
