Religious freedom leads agenda at US bishops’ meeting

Catholic World News - May 08, 2012

A discussion of domestic and international threats to religious freedom will lead the agenda at the spring meeting of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops from June 13 to 16.

As they gather in Atlanta, the US bishops will also discuss “Catholic Reflections on Work, Poverty and a Broken Economy”--a proposed message on the economic crisis--and hear reports on Catholic Relief Services, the clerical abuse scandal, the Year of Faith, and same-sex marriage.

    I can't think of a group less qualified by virtue of education and experience to discuss "Work, Poverty and a Broken Economy”. Now, if they were going to discuss "the Church's response to problems caused by a Broken Economy", I would be interested. We don't need any more messages, opinions, or reflections from our Church leaders. We need Catholic action that shows our broken culture the love of Christ!
