The new head of the USCCB review board is not just an Obama supporter. Diane Knight is an Obama donor. Exactly why should orthodox Catholics trust the bishops when they name to their review board, an organization ostensibly dedicated to defending the safety of children, a woman who contributes to a pro-abortion extremist? Obama stands, not only for murder of the unborn, but for infanticide of abortion survivors.
What's wrong with this picture? Plenty! Add to that the USCCB's Catholic Campaign for Human Development with its history of funding community organizing groups that support agendas diametrically opposed to Catholic teaching like ACORN, Industrial Areas Foundation, PICO, etc. Then there are the scandalous USCCB documents like Always Our Children and the ambiguous ones like Catholic Citizenship that so many liberal Catholics use to justify supporting pro-abortion politicians and the gay agenda.
Isn't it time to take a good look at the USCCB and ask why Catholics in the pew are being taxed to keep the bishops' unfaithful bureaucracy in business? Check out Jim Fritz's article at The Defender on intrinsic evil and the USCCB. Maybe we should begin asking faithful bishops who stand in the tradition of St. John Fisher to pull out of an organization that is used to justify the cowardice and infidelity of those bishops who have more in common with the bench that upheld Henry VIII's adulterous marriage to Anne Boleyn.
Not that many years ago (1992) about three dozen orthodox orders of nuns formed The Council of Major Superiors of Women Religious breaking away from The Leadership Conference of Women Religious which was filled with dissenters. The new organization has an average age of about 35 with all the sisters in full habits. The LCWR, on the other hand, is filled with grey-headed rebels in pantsuits. Many laity rejoiced when it happened. Let's pray something similar happens with the bishops. It's high time the real shepherds separated from the wolves in sheep's clothing who are gobbling up the flock.
