**Most of the bishops in the U.S. have been chosen from among the worst prieststhe climbers and networkers. Four percent of priests were abusers; sixty-six percent of bishops covered up for them.**
This is true if you consider the Bernardin boys and the Jadot Jots.....but most of them are gone now and have been replaced by Orthodox Bishops placed by Popes John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and Francis.
Even western Oregon got a conservative Bishop — figure that one out!
Gomez was a “conservative.”
He may be “conservative” on strictly theological topics, but he is an anti-Anglo bigot and a full-time amnesty activist.
Which means that he is in FAVOR of increasing the bloc of pro-abortion voters.
AFAIK, JPII paid almost no attention to episcopal appointments. Bernardin and Weakland flourished under JPII.
As a rule, the men appointed as bishops are mentally well-prepared to deal with the world as it was forty to sixty years ago.
It is just dawning on America’s bishops that the Democrats are pro-abortion.
