Amy Welborn has posted, at her excellent blog, a blurb about a "40 page booklet" issued by the "Catholic Church in Wales and England" called "Taxation for the Common Good." Here's a link to an article about the booklet. The article includes the following: "Taxes are very much based on the principles of solidarity, which is based on the commandment to love your neighbour," former Bishop Howard Tripp, Chairman of the Church's Committee for Public Life, told Reuters on Monday. Here's another article.
The Iowa Catholic Conference issued a similar statement a few months ago.
I'd welcome Professor Bainbridge's reactions!
