CatholicVote is updating a list of Bishops 'speaking out' against the HHS Mandate. As of today, 93 of them have made statements that range from a dog and pony show to the legitimate leadership of a crusade.
You have a statements like O'Malley's that says he is disappointed and moves right along to his next blog item.
Then you have statements like Lynch's, that go a little bit further, saying we should delay implementation of killing children, spiritually abusing women and collaborating with the loss of their salvation until all legal avenues have been exhausted.
Are these people serious?
The statements of these two men, and those like them, are unacceptable. A crock of crap.
They are collaborators, and are either a coward or a liar. Their statements do not belong on a list of men of conviction any more than a link to Carol Keehnan's absurd remark that she is disappointed.
Let us not applaud the asinine. Talk is cheap.
Scroll the list. The only Bishops who are serious and sincernke, are the Bishops who are saying we can't and won't follow this law.
We can't cooperate with this.
We don't kill people because the government says we must. Moreover, it's less serious to carry out an execution,than to be the parties giving the tools to uncatechized and distraught women so they can harm themselves or their children. Any bishop who believes they are not the
These are men who should prefer execution rather than cooperate with this spiritual vortex.
At the end of the day, the onus is not on Catholic lay people to "oppose it". It isn't on Congress. The only people who can stop it are the bishops. Our crusade is to pin it on them. Hold them accountable.
Here is a statement with the conviction of a bishop
"We cannot and will not comply with this unjust decree. Like the martrys of old we must be prepared to accept suffering which could include heavy fines and imprisonment."
Amen to all that. Let it be done to us according to His Word.
Open up the book of revelation. Read where we are going. It is unraveling right before your eyes.
