    The goals are Christian, but telling Catholics to use specific political means is a despicable use of Catholic teaching authority! The bishops and the leftist CRS do not have the expertise or right to prescribe either political solutions for the U.S. or political actions for Catholics. It is time for the USCCB to stop supporting the CRS leftists and to mute the progressive bishops that support them!
