USCC's Fire Is Lit

This may be interesting.

In light of recent comments by Catholic politicians misrepresenting Catholic teaching, the Administrative Committee of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops affirms the statements that have been issued by Cardinal Justin F. Rigali, chairman of the U.S. Bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities, and Bishop William E. Lori, chairman of the U.S. Bishops' Committee on Doctrine. We confirm the Catholic Church's constant teaching about the sanctity of all human life from the moment of conception and the intrinsic evil of abortion. As the teachers of the faith, we also point out the connectedness between the evil of abortion and political support for abortion. We plan to discuss the practical and pastoral implications of these serious matters at the U.S. bishops' November 10-13, 2008 general meeting in Baltimore.

Pelosi and Biden have managed to get USCC going on the issue.

One more thing: the Ordinary of Washington DC has turned over. That makes a big difference.

I think it's interesting that they have chosen to discuss the issue following the election.

Funny how they'll take an immediate stance and release statements regarding their opposition to immigration raids but they'll dawdle on their approach to pro-abortion "Catholics".
