    A federal appeals court rejected a Texas abortion chain's demand for all private communications from the state's 23 bishops. The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals granted an emergency appeal from the Texas Conference of Catholic Bishops after a lower court gave the church 24 hours to hand over decades of private records to Whole Women's Health. "IT IS ORDERED that the emergency motion for stay filed by the Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops is GRANTED pending further order of this court," the court said in a preliminary ruling [emphasis in original]. The case stems from the clinic's successful lawsuit to...

    The New York Times and the U.S. bishops appear to have very different understandings of President Trump's motivations, but do seem to arrive at an equally negative conclusion. First, here is Times' editor David Leonhardt's take, titled "Trump Flirts With Theocracy": Let’s not mince words. President Trump’s recent actions are an attempt to move the United States away from being the religiously free country that the founders created — and toward becoming an aggressively Christian country hostile to other religions. ... On Friday afternoon, of course, Trump signed an executive order barring refugees and citizens of seven majority Muslim countries...
  • US Bishops Call for Influx of 200,000 Refugees

    The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is appealing to the U.S. government to take in 100,000 Syrian refugees by the end of the year, along with an additional 100,000 from other countries. The population of Syrian refugees is overwhelmingly Muslim. In a message distributed via email, the USCCB is encouraging Catholics to submit a letter to their congressional representatives as well as to President Obama urging the government to "protect the lives and dignity of people in Syria, Iraq and in other countries suffering war, persecution and poverty." According to the pre-transcribed letter this is to be accomplished by...

    The Francis-Obama strategy now in effect: The first obvious outcome of the Barack Obama celebrated Pope Francis ‘Laudato Si ‘encyclical on the environment will be the return of the Lib-left as the Government of Canada. It’s official, proof of which can be found online in the Canadian Council of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) 2015 Election Guide at under “publications”. Catholics like me were informed in paraphrased words at Sunday Mass yesterday, that the next four weeks during the federal election campaign, the homilies of all Catholic priests in Canada will abandon the Gospel of Christ for hardline electioneering advising folk...

    As long as their bishops are supporting soul-killing Marxism, Catholics should stop supporting their bishops It was the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) that unleashed the evil Saul Alinsky on an unsuspecting Western society, from Chicago. Satan-loving Alinsky, whose ideals motivate both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton to this day, was going nowhere until the USCCB took him under their robes and financed him. With the USCCB’s well-documented history of financing devil-worshipping Alinsky patently ignored by the mainstream media, USCCB today is using its favourite charity to fund groups advocating the Michael Brown-Eric Garner protests, including burning and looting...

    Los Angeles, Calif., Jan 14, 2014 / 02:04 am (CNA).- Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles has said Americans have to see “the human faces of immigration”: the children and families suffering under America's “broken” immigration policy. “In the name of enforcing our laws, we’re breaking up families. Punishing kids for the mistakes of their parents,” he said, referring to the nearly two million people deported over the last four years. “That’s the sad truth – one out of every four people we deport is being taken away from an intact family.” The archbishop’s remarks came Jan. 10 in a...

    The president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is pressuring the House to act on immigration legislation before the end of the year, calling the issue “a matter of great moral urgency” that cannot wait. Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of New York, said in a letter to Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, on Thursday that he was troubled by reports that immigration reform is delayed in the House since lawmakers have a responsibility to resolve the issue. … “As a moral matter … our nation cannot continue to receive the benefits of the work and contributions of undocumented immigrants...

    ( - The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops filed comments with the Department of Health and Human Services on Wednesday stating that the regulation that HHS issued under Obamacare that requires most health-care plans in the United States to cover sterilizations, contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs continues to be an “unjust and unlawful mandate” despite "accommodations" the administration proposed last month. The bishops reiterated their position that "the mandate should rescinded." "In short," said the bishops' comments, "the Administration continues to propose: (a) un unjust and unlawful mandate; (b) no exemption or 'accommodation' at all for most stakeholders in the health...

    July 23, 2012 ( - The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ “Campaign for Human Development” paid a young Barack Obama’s airfaire to a training program on community organizing given by the Industrial Areas Foundation, an organization founded by leftist radical Saul Alinsky, according a book to be released tomorrow on the subject. No Higher Power, by conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly and journalist George Neumayr, reports that “In the 1980s, the Catholic archdiocese of Chicago contributed to the training of Obama in the very Alinskyite radicalism that would culminate in such anti-religious measures as the HHS mandate,” according to an...

    In a surprising and historic turn of events, the Bishops of the United States, gathered in Baltimore, Maryland for their annual meeting, broke with the "custom" of the past, of electing the seated Vice president to succeed Francis cardinal George whose term has expired. Most pundits and ecclesial commentators strongly predicted Bishop Gerald Kicanas of Tucson would be elected to succed Cardinal George on Tuesday, November 16, 2010. In response to what they considered a foregone conclusion, a portion of the Catholic blogosphere was preparing to respond with anything but glowing acclamation. Then, a surprise of the Holy Spirit occurred,...
