This priest is usually right on, but I’m not getting where he is coming from here. Speaking out about the simple Church teaching concerning abortion is only remarkable because of the comparison to what has been going on for the last couple of decades. It’s only barely half of what they should have been doing all along. Maybe I’m misunderstanding what “application of authority” means, but I reckon if any real “application of authority” was going down ol’ “practicing Catholic Scranton Joe” would have been a millstone around Obama’s neck.

Freegards, thanks for all the awesome pings

Speaking for those of us whose bishops take the "fuzzy" route because their primary devotion is apparently to the Democrat Party, I'm only too happy to praise those who spoke out -- doesn't hurt to give encouragement to those who do the right thing, even if it's overdue!

Ransomed is right. I’m all for encouraging phone calls to the diocese but I want a Bishop who backs up what he says. Excommunicate Biden now. It’s pathetic that it’s the bishops who stood out who are the ones true to the Faith.This should be a given.
