Does Taco Bell have a moral responsibility to justly compensate workers in Florida’s tomato fields?
Does Taco Bell have an ethical obligation to treat its immigrant employees fairly?
Does Taco Bell have a social duty to conserve resources and reduce its environmental footprint?
According to the Catholic Left, the answer to all these questions is “no.” You heard it first in publications like Commonweal and the National Catholic Reporter.
These “social justice” sources openly ridicule the idea that people who operate Taco Bell or any business have a conscience that could be bound by religious duties.
Gallicho, Winters and Schneck have therefore “proven” that businesses have no moral duty to do justice to their workers, the community, or the planet. If someone has no conscience, she has no conscience for any purpose.
I’ll bet you thought that left-leaning Catholics actually believed the Catholic faith requires care for labor and the environment. But now we know they quickly throw these faux “social justice” issues right under the Nuns’ Bus when important things like free hormones and electioneering are at stake.
The Catholic Left is leading the way to justify corporate plundering of labor and the environment, by making sure we all know that people in business have no conscience. I can see the bumper sticker now: “Commonweal Mag: Championing Economic Exploitation Since 2012.” Now that’s “progress.”
