USCC Not a Part of "Hush Rush" Bunch

Abp. Chaput and USCC staffers have denied being part of the church-bunch which is interested in stifling "hate speech."

The Department of Communications of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has said it did not join a petition to the FCC which called for discussion over “hate speech” and its alleged role in violence. Some critics of the petition have cast it as an effort to shut down radio show hosts like Rush Limbaugh.

The Department of Communications told CNA on Monday that they had sent their own letter noting the “serious constitutional and regulatory problems” associated with regulating alleged hate speech.

However, the USCC is a member of the 'So We Might See' coalition.
