Catholic Bishops Asked To Re-Think Their Stance On ProLife Issues

In a small story in the Inside Higher Ed, Richard A. Yanikoski, president of the association of Catholic colleges, has asked the US bishops to review their stance on allowing schools to honor politicians who believe in murdering children. Here's the link:

I don't understand why these people can't get it.

The bishops could revisit their recommendations a thousand times, but they'd always end up with the same conclusion. We're talking about the Church here, not some human institution that can fall prey to every hair brained agenda that some idiot in higher education wants to promote.

Every now and then, I get this flash in my head, and I really start to grasp just how BAD abortion really is. I find myself living in a world where the most abominable sin is being called a right, and it makes me feel like I'm in some sort of surreal fantasy world.

Anti-Semitic Bishops Get Warning

One of the points I made several months ago, when our pope lifted the excommunication of the anti-Semitic bishop, was that he HAD NOT given that bishop any power. All he had done was allow the bishop to be a part of the church again.

The press couldn't quite see that. They wanted to crucify Pope Benedict for his actions—not considering the fact that the pope was just trying to find a way to help thousands of people come back into the church. People who, we should remember, really WANTED to be in communion with Rome. If you know any traditionalists, then you know how torn they are on the subject.

Now the pope has issued a warning to the bishops not to ordain priests. Here's the story from Reuters:

Let's see if the press has the same type of orgasm it had when the pope lifted the excommunication.
