“This is the first time in the history of the United States…”

FrancisCardinalGeorge“… that a presidential administration has purposely tried to interfere in the internal working of the Catholic Church, playing one group off against another for political gain.  What isn’t always understood is that the Bishops of the Church make no attempt to speak for all Catholics; they never have.  The Bishops speak for the Catholic and apostolic faith, and those who hold that faith gather around them.  Others disperse.  That dynamic is clear in history and became clear also in the official visit to Rome that the Bishops of our region made this week.

Our visit has reminded us that the Church enjoys divine assistance even when she is being attacked.”

– Francis Cardinal George, OMI – Archbishop of Chicago

Someone should ask the President what he thinks about this first.

Someone should ask Nancy Pelosi, the Catholic Nancy Pelosi, what she thinks.

Someone should ask Kathleen Sebelius, the Catholic Kathleen Sebelius, what she thinks.

Don’t hold your breath.
