the feminist connection at the US bishops' conference

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Sep 15, 2005

A few days ago I mentioned the no-nonsense edit handed down by Teresa Kettelkamp, the executive director of the USCCB Office of Child and Youth Protection, who tells all American bishops what they must do-- and do it now!

Teresa Kettelkamp, who came to the USCCB from the Illinois State Police, is also a member of the advisory board for the Center for Women and Policing.

Would you like to know more about the Center for Women and Policing? It's a division of the Feminist Majority Foundation.

But when you hear about the Feminist Majority Foundation in the news, the topic usually isn't police work. Usually it's abortion.

Led by Eleanor Smeal, the Feminist Majority Foundation is at the forefront in the political battle for legalized abortion on demand.

And Teresa Kettelkamp, who works with this group, is now telling the American Catholic bishops how to behave.

Now notice, there is no evidence that Teresa Kettelkamp has been personally involved in promoting legal abortion; all we know is that she lends her name-- and presumably her advice-- to an organization involved in abortion lobbying. But do you suppose the USCCB would ever hire someone who was affiliated, however loosely, with, say, the Ku Klux Klan?
