what we have here is a failure to communicate

By Diogenes (articles ) | Nov 12, 2008

At their annual meeting this week, the US bishops elected Bishop Gabino Zavala-- of "we're not a one-issue church" fame-- to chair their communications committee. He was chosen over Bishop Robert Finn of Kansas City, author of one of the strongest episcopal statements about the obligation to vote pro-life. 

What message does this vote communicate to the world? 

Bishop Finn was admirably clear. In a pre-election radio interview he asserted plainly that "you can't support a person who wants to go to complete full-scale war against the unborn."

Bishop Zavala was clear, too. The Washington Post's E.J. Dionne said that the outspoken comments by the LA auxiliary proved: "Progressive Catholics are now as organized as conservative Catholics were in 2004."
