The US bishops abd the Vatican ...

... every time I think my opinion of them can't sink any lower, they go and prove me wrong.

There's a post by Bryan Cones at US Catholic that mentions a couple of topics of interest ...

The U.S. bishops' ad hoc committee on religious liberty issued their promised statement on religious liberty today: "Our First, Most Cherished Liberty." In it, they somewhat breathlessly suggest, "that the fourteen days from June 21—the vigil of the Feasts [sic, it's a memorial, and memorials don't have vigils] of St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More—to July 4, Independence Day, be dedicated to this 'fortnight for freedom'—a great hymn of prayer for our country." (Seriously, that sounds like something you would hear on The 700 Club.) Commonweal's editors found the statement both unnecessarily sweeping and unfortunately partisan; at U.S. Catholic, Meghan Murphy-Gill breaks down the bishops' accounts of the "concrete threats" to religious freedom ......

And ...

[T]he Redemptorist priest who founded the reform-minded Association of Catholic priests has been sent to a monastery for six months, while a survey commissioned by said association found a shocking (?) amount of support for the ordination of married men (about 90 percent) and women (77 percent). The whole report is here.

Crystal, I have not the time to read all of this but I will be praying that GOD sends some of His Angels to find out which "ONE" of U>S (usual sinners) is wrong and also ask HIM to have "IT" all corrected hopefully before "HIS JUDGEMENT DAY" comes around.

Happy Friday the 13th! :)
