The USCCB has absolutely no authority in the Catholic Church, but it is doing much to undermine the legitimate authority of the Church. The USCCB is a leftwing radical organization that needs to be defunded and eliminated. The depth of the rot at the USCCB is beyond reform. It should be closed, sold, and its millions returned to the dioceses. In turn the bishops in the dioceses should return the money to the parishes. Of course, since many of the bishops are part of the problem they may just pour the money into renovations at the bishop's house and chancery offices and salaries for more staff, like the two receptionists in Arlington who buzz folks in to the LOCKED chancery building.
