Bishops Respond to America Magazine Editorial

Well - at first the Jesuits were on our side in the fight against mandatory coverage of sterilization and contraception including abortion . I honestly thought that this was just the kind of issue which would draw Jesuit Universities and College to action as it focused on the important reality of respect for conscience, which has long been their defense against believing most of what the Church teaches. However, at the first opportunity they all jumped ship: here and here.  The problem is now they are working to undermine the US Bishops in their battle for people of faith to be able to live and act according to their conscience. The recent editorial in America magazine encouraging bishops to cave-in and get along with this administration is really despicable.

Luckily we seem to have entered into a new era in the Catholic Church in America. The Bishops seem to realize how high the stakes are and are taking very seriously their obligation to preach and teach the truth, and not to put up with the nonsense that spews from the very organizations which have worked for so many years to undermine just about everything we believe as Roman Catholics.

Anyway, Archbishop Dolan isn't listening to America Magazine.  Neither is Bishop Lori. Thanks be to God.
