Lay Catholics denounce USCCB for Biden congrats

Article:  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/...joe-biden/

Noteworthy excerpts:

"The USCCB has affirmed what many of us have suspected for many years, and that is that most Catholic bishops have no problem with a Catholic politician spitting at the face of Christ by supporting the vile murder of the preborn. Joe Biden is such a man; he claims to be Catholic, yet he gives 100 percent support for abortion every day of the week and in every manner of brutality against the innocent. The Catholic bishops have erred, and as a Catholic, I am ashamed of them."

"The reality of the USCCB issuing a statement of congratulations to Joe Biden should not be a surprise to anyone. The USCCB is a feckless spineless conglomerate of dead souls. They are not the descendants of the Apostles. They are what St. John Paul II referred to when he wrote of the Anti-Church. Every Catholic should shake the dust from his feet regarding the USCCB. Listen to them not. We must put our faith in Christ."

Perfectly said.

I don't think anyone should be congratulating or claiming victory at this point. There are many accusations of voter fraud that still need to be investigated (hundreds of pages of witness affidavits from one swing-state county alone). Some people are upset that Trump won't concede, but if the situation were reversed I'd discourage Biden from conceding.

That said, even if Biden is declared the winner after the investigations are finished (either the evidence is false or not enough votes were added in or changed to flip the state), the bishops should NEVER congratulate pro-abortion politicians. They are doing a huge disservice to everyone because people will mistakenly think that abortion is either morally neutral or morally good when it's actually intrinsically evil. The bishops should be leading souls to heaven, not to confusion.

Do not donate to the USSB, CRS, Peter's Pence, etc. Very corrupt organizations that promote anti-Catholic agendas.

I'd call them the Unholy Syndicate of Corrupt and Cowardly Bimbos, but that seems unfair to bimbos.

There are other words I can think of to describe the USCCB, but these are by far more polite and printable.

POW! OOF! AMERICAN LIFE LEAGUE TO U.S. CATHOLIC BISHOPS CONFERENCE: YOU ARE A 'FECKLESS, SPINELESS CONGLOMERATE OF DEAD SOULS'
The American Life League is an inspiration. Let's just say she was not too pleased with the bishops offering their congratulations to "Catholic" Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. It's worth a read.

Leaders at the American Life League told CNS that this proves that the organization is "a feckless, spineless, conglomerate of dead souls."


Wow. Judie Brown, the President of American Life League lays it out further.
 

Quote:
By Judie Brown
On November 7, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops issued a press release stating in part: “We recognize that Joseph R. Biden, Jr., has received enough votes to be elected the 46th president of the United States. We congratulate Mr. Biden and acknowledge that he joins the late President John F. Kennedy as the second United States president to profess the Catholic faith. We also congratulate Sen. Kamala D. Harris of California, who becomes the first woman ever elected as vice president.”
We were dumbfounded because it is not clear that the Biden/Harris team has actually won. And frankly, pro-abort politicians like these two should be reprimanded by the USCCB, not congratulated! The USCCB’s rush to curry favor with pro-aborts has not only saddened us, but has left us disturbed.
And it is not just us. Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas, tweeted: “A dark cloud has descended on this nation when the USCCB and Planned Parenthood speak in unison in support of a Biden-Harris administration that supports the slaughter of innocents by abortion for all 9 months of pregnancy.”
Yet, in the midst of this darkness, we find much light and hope in a statement Pope Benedict XVI made about episcopal conferences like the USCCB: “Bishops’ conferences . . . came into being as a practical application of the collegial affection of bishops in hierarchical communion with the successor of Peter.”
He further pointed out something that is relevant to every conference of bishops, not merely the Brazilian bishops to whom he was writing: “The Bishops’ Conference therefore coordinates the Bishops’ efforts and intentions, becoming an instrument that enables each to share his burdens; but it must not become a parallel or substitute of the ministry of each one of the bishops. In other words it must neither change its relationship with the respective particular Church or with the Episcopal College nor make itself an intermediary between the bishop and the See of Peter.”
Now-retired Bishop Joseph Martino understood that all too well. In 2008, he told an audience:

Quote:No USCCB document is relevant in this diocese. . . . The USCCB doesn’t speak for me. . . . The only relevant document . . . is my letter. There is one teacher in this diocese, and these points are not debatable.
Then, as now, every Catholic bishop is a shepherd to the people of his diocese, and no organization—including the USCCB bureaucracy—can take that teaching authority away from him. While it is evident that the USCCB loves to pretend that it can do that, such is not the case.
So, for the record, let us never forget the actions of heroic priests and bishops who, unlike the USCCB, have defended the Eucharist and made it clear that pro-abortion Catholics-in-name-only—like Biden—should not receive the Eucharist.
One such priest is Fr. Robert Morey of St. Anthony Catholic Church in South Carolina. In 2019, he defended Christ by refusing the Eucharist to Biden and took it on the proverbial chin from the secular mediaWe saidit then, and we say it now: Thank God for Fr. Morey.
Equally outspoken in defending Christ and exposing Biden have been Fr. James AltmanFr. Stephen ImbarratoBishop Thomas Paprocki, and Cardinal Raymond Burke.
It is apparent that the USCCB does not represent each individual bishop when it applauds a pro-abortion Catholic politician; it has never done so, and it never will.
As Cardinal Raymond Burke said in an interview earlier this year, any pro-abortion public figure who claims to be Catholic, including Joe Biden, is

Quote:not a Catholic in good standing and he should not approach to receive Holy Communion.
This is not a political statement, I don’t intend to get involved in recommending any candidate for office, but simply to state that a Catholic may not support abortion in any shape or form because it is one of the most grievous sins against human life, and has always been considered to be intrinsically evil and therefore to in any way support the act is a mortal sin.
That statement puts a fine point on the subject. Like many of his fellow bishops and priests, Burke defends Christ no matter what the cost. And frankly, so should each and every one of us.
The USCCB has erred. There is no such thing as Bishops for Biden, only bureaucrats for confusion.

Last I checked, carrying around a rosary in your pocket and committing sacrilegious communion doesn't mean you "profess the Catholic faith."
"The Heart of Jesus is closer to you when you suffer, than when you are full of joy." - St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

Put not your trust in princes: In the children of men, in whom there is no salvation. - Ps. 145:2-3

"For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables." - 2 Timothy 4:3-4
