‘The Catholic bishops are in nobody's political pocket’

Catholic World News - July 04, 2012

In one of the first efforts of Catholics Voices USA—a “media-friendly and studio-ready” lay initiative that seeks to “put the Church's case in the public square”-- Melissa Moschella argues in the New York Daily News that

the Catholic Church is willing to go to the mat to defend religious freedom — in these cases, the freedom to serve the needy regardless of their religion or immigration status — independently of whether the challenges to that freedom come from the right or the left, from the Obama administration or from hard-line right-wing state governments.

    Why lie about the obvious?

    And what does God have to do with "politics" and "politics" have to do with God? The primary issue is NOT what any bishop or bishops have to do with politics be whether in fact they are doing their primary job, which has to do with souls and eternity.
