Good, strong words, clearly and concisely written. Huzzah for Archbishop Dolan.
That's what I'm sayin'!And we have heard strongly this week from 4-5 other outraged Bishops (thank God for them!); NOW where do the other +/- 450 active+retired Bishops stand? Come on guys, speak up...the world is watching you...Reclaim the dignity and moral authority that has been eroded/lost PLEASE.
Would it be possible for our parish to send the Archbishop a thank-you letter? Maybe our Bishops would be more willing to go out on a limb if they knew we were there supporting them.
Re Jenny's comment: According to this linkhttp://www.usccb.org/issues-and-action/religious-liberty/conscience-protection/upload/Full_List_Webpage_CURRENT.docx400 Catholic leaders have signed a USCCB petition. Darned few of them, as of the time I'm posting this, are bishops.It's also worth noting that Fr. John Jenkins has signed it. I find his name on the list a bitter sight. He's the president of Notre Dame, who so militantly insisted--in the face of massive criticism--that giving Obama an honorary degree in the spring of 2009 would further the Catholic "dialogue" with pro-abortion politicians. Many of us asked at the time "What dialogue?" Well, now that it's far too late, at least Fr. Jenkins finally gets it. Would that he--and the country's bishops--had spoken up earlier.
