USCCB ready to fight for religous liberty?

Leaner, meaner USCCB?

I keep reminding myself how lucky we are that Our Lord answered our prayers to derail the election of Kicanas. We really dodged a bullet on that one. That guy is a full fledged card carrying member of the radical demoralization of souls.

I am grateful for the opportunities Bishop Dolan has taken to make changes, or speak out in the public square. I don't want to appear to be an ingrate, but it is fair to say, there's lotsa room for improvement.

First of all, the fact that they didn't get their panties in a twist until a flow of money was shut off does not go unnoticed.
Furthermore, I am much more concerned about the liberty to teach the Catholic religion in our own schools and parishes. This is the greatest threat to evangelization.

The Bishops are the parties of the first part selling off our conscience protections all over the country.
Every Catholic hospital has a price on it.

The USCCB isn't building anything. It is the natural order of things. The more you take away money from the Bishops, the better they get at the role of salvation. Cut off the oxygen to the beast.

He also appears to be giddy about the rope a dope meeting with Obama.

We can all relax. Obama is going to look into the problem with religious liberty under his administration.

Come on. Obama is the one driving the agenda. He put all the people in place.

Give us a break.

Carol, I said pretty much the same thing in http://restore-dc-catholicism.blogspot.com/2011/11/maryland-catholic-establishment-and.html. As long as the hierarchy thinks it can have it cake and eat it too, the position of the Church will be compromised in many ways. They are not serious about real religious liberty; it's all about their income stream. I will pay attention to their protestations about religious liberty when: 1) they divest themselves of any and all governmental grants regardless of level and 2) when they start obeying Canon 915.

Have a great Thanksgiving!
