Bishops ‘disappointed’ by Supreme Court’s travel-ban decision

June 28, 2018

CWN Editor's Note: “The travel ban targets Muslims for exclusion, which goes against our country’s core principle of neutrality when it comes to people of faith,” said the chairmen of two USCCB committees. “We are disappointed in the Court’s ruling because it failed to take into account the clear and unlawful targeting of a specific religious group by the government.”

    29% of travel-banned countries are _not_ Muslim: Venezuela and North Korea. What extrapolation formula considers 29% insignificant? My guess is that the majority of Communist North Koreans are atheist, agnostic, or pagan. Venezuela might have some Christians, but as a practical Communist dictatorship, many who choose not to flee are likely atheist or pagan. Where is the concern of the episcopate for all of these non-Muslims?

    Yet another example of the USCCB's increasing irrelevance to the quest of moral guidance.
