KNOW YOUR BISHOPS!

INTRODUCTION: Jesus said, "By your fruits you shall know them." That doesn't sound like an admonition to live in blind acceptance of everything people say and do because "who am I to judge?" We are, in fact, called by Christ to evaluate and judge the fruits of those around us so we can make sound moral decisions. It becomes even more important when we are talking about leaders. Do believing Catholics want to follow a politician who advocates abortion, euthanasia, assisted suicide, unbridled greed, sodomy, suppression of conscience rights or free speech, etc.? Of course not! So why would believing Catholics want to follow bishops who advocate and work to advance immoral behavior that conflicts with Catholic doctrine taught for 2000 years by the magisterium of the Church? Do we really need to change with the times? Do moral truths change with the times? Are we all Pilates today who shrug and ask, "What is truth?"

This page includes articles where the teachers of the Church speak for themselves and others that describe what's happening in their dioceses. They offer the reader the opportunity to be informed and choose whom he will follow. There are no secrets about the fruits of many of these men in roman collars. Some offer beautiful fruit for our spiritual health; others give us poisoned fruit from rotten trees. By their fruits you shall know them!

Whom will you choose to follow?

Thanks, I added it.

I recommend adding René Henry Gracida, the retired “bishop” of the diocese of Corpus Christi, Texas. He had to notify a Catholic Texas politician that he had excommunicated himself over public support for abortion.

Bishop Ochoa now in Fresno persecuted a priest Father Michael Rodriguez for opposing the homosexual agenda when he was bishop of El Paso. Then in Fresno he sheltered a known convicted abuser Father Eric Swearingen. Another Wolf inside the fold.
