Glad to see the US bishops conference tackling the really important work of evangelization. Bishop William Skylstad scolds Congress for passing an immoral budget bill.
The recent budget reconciliation bill fails to “meet the needs of the most vulnerable among us,” said Bishop William S. Skylstad, president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in a Jan. 24 letter to the House of Representatives, according to a Jan. 30 announcement from the bishops’ conference.
Because the only way to meet the demands of Catholic teaching is to spend more taxpayer money. Charity comes from faceless tax requirements dispensed by a government agency. When was the last time, we heard a leader of the USCCBureaucracy address a really important Catholic issue on Capitol Hill? Where were they when the nomination of Justice Sam Alito, a Catholic, was being browbeaten for not being sufficiently ecstatic about abortion by Catholic Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee?
