A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

USCCB put their heads back in the sand.

The following article was found at the Religion News Service blogsite via The Curt Jester.

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has scuttled plans to discuss abortion and politics next week in Baltimore, according to spokeswoman Sister Mary Ann Walsh.

In September, after high-profile Catholic politicians challenged church teaching on abortion, the bishops announced that they "plan to discuss the practical and pastoral implications of these serious matters at the U.S. bishops' Nov. 10-13, 2008 general meeting in Baltimore."

That statement followed remarks by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and then-Sen. Joe Biden that questioned the church's longstanding opposition to abortion. With President-elect Barack Obama's election on Tuesday, Biden, his running mate, will become the nation's first Catholic vice president.

Walsh said the bishops' discussion has been removed from the agenda as of late Friday. The agenda will not be finalized until Saturday afternoon, Walsh added.

"I think this is something that has evolved since September," Walsh said. "Many bishops have already addressed the issue (of pro-abortion rights politicians) through pastoral letters, so there's not the same need they saw in September."

As of earlier this week, at least two bishops said they planned to discuss the matter in Baltimore.
It's possible that the bishops will discuss the matter in closed-door sessions, but it's rare for the bishops, or any religious body, to issue a press release about private discussions.

A report on "Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship," moral guidelines for Catholic voters the bishops produced in 2007, will likely be issued at the bishops' Baltimore meeting, Walsh said.

Well, we're back to business as usual with the USCCB. Looks like their collective head will go back into the sand on the topic of Catholic politicians openingly defying Church teaching. There will be no consequences for the likes of Biden, Pelosi, Kerry, etc. A fair number of Catholic bloggers smelled a rat when they initially scheduled the discussion for after the election. Seems there was plenty of reason for that suspicion.

Funny thing, let the Judas Iscariot Fan Club latch onto a politically correct topic such as condemning the invasion of Iraq and they'll spare no effort to get into the national spotlight.

Someone should tell these assholes that true Christians are countercultural and that means going against the genocidal flow of our culture of death in a very public manner. Fortunately a fair number of bishops HAVE spoken out forcefully on the topic. I pray they continue while at the same time hoping for a dismantling of the USCCB. Does it really serve any useful function?

The similarity is so clear that it's almost laughable: business as usual translates into business as usual for the USCCB as well. The only difference is that those politicians wear Roman collars.

Sad, but true.

Keep telling the truth, my friend. Keep telling the truth.

Well, it does employ people who would otherwise be parasites on the body politic. (The lay staff)

This way, they're parasites on the Mystical Body.
