Why does the bishops own news service seek to undermine the bishop’s authority? October 15, 2010

Posted by Tantumblogo in Abortion, Basics, General Catholic, scandals, Society.

Thomas Peters at Catholic Vote has a very important story regarding our favorite female religious, Sr. Carol Keehan, the USCCB run Catholic News Service (a very problematic organization, to say the least), and Obamacare.  It certainly appears that CNS is, intentionally or not, undermining the voice of the bishops in opposition to Obamacare due to its pro-abort potentialities.  The story is long, but it’s an important read, and you should read all of it.  The question being asked is a hugely critical one – who has the moral authority to shape and guide Catholic doctrine and make moral judgements – the bishops, collectively making up the Magisterium in the United States, or a quasi-magisterium made up of progressives in the Church, especially those in the religious orders, college faculty and staff, and the media.

Sometimes I’m critical of individual bishops.  I don’t know that I’ve ever collectively questioned the bishops of this country, but in this case, they are performing exactly the role they are required to fill by God, in upholding the Traditional Doctrine of the Faith.

Tantumergo, this is completely OT but I thought you and other local Catholics in recovery might be interested in a new 12 step group being started. It’s at St. Jude in Allen, the next meeting in on the 30th of this month at 9:15 AM in the education building.

It’s still trying to find it’s focus and purpose. I know that many Catholics in recovery get tired of the gratuitous bashing the Church receives in AA/NA groups. Maybe this could answer a need for that.

It will NOT be affiliated with AA or any other group. That point was repeatedly emphasized during the startup meeting today. It may draw heavily on literature from them but that would be about the extent of it.

Just passing the word on.

Thanks, subvet! I will post on this later – please keep me apprised if you get any more information.

I would hit that up and see how it worked. Sounds interesting – the gratuitous Church bashing is tiresome in NA.
