The Knights have been rock solid on abortion for years, unlike the waffling bishops. I think Carl Andersen’s speech takes it to another level, one that is crucially important this year. Now if only the bishops would get behind this and start telling people such as Pelosi that there is no way on earth they can support and promote and vote for abortion and still call themselves Catholic. They are out of communion with (that is, excommunicated from) the Church and this needs to be publicly demonstrated. Only the bishops - and individual priests in individual situations, if they are brave enough - can do it. Maybe this pressure and support from the K of C will make the bishops act.

Yup. But it would also be nice for the Vatican to call out these noodle spined bishops by name. In fact, I’m not sure what to say about a bishop who allows a public figure and member of his flock to not only defy Church teaching but also loudly proclaim false teaching to others by means of mass-media.
