The "Faithful Citizenship" pamphlet? If anything, they should dedicate that example of episcopal relativism to the memory of the 54 million aborted babies who never got to see the light of day thanks in part to the politicians we freely elect.

And there are no discussions concerning Canon 915 and their lack of following it; Common Core in Catholic schools; and last (but not least) CINO universities and colleges who regularly ignore the Magisterium. Perhaps the bishops don't want to talk about these things, but the laity most certainly wants to know why they are not taking care of business. (What a great idea for future meetings - let the laity set the agenda!)
