Know-nothing article touts faulty USCCB voting guidance. Attempts to confuse and water down the truth.

Here’s a few clues:

Burke is right on Catholic policy and he also rightly understands that the U. S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is wrong. Plus … the USCCB has absolutely no canonical authority of its own, in this matter. Only individual bishops have the authority to govern their own diocese.

McCarrick and Wuerl might be right on USCCB policy, but they (and the majority of the USCCB) are are wrong when it comes to articulating authentic Catholic principles, on these matters.

The National Catholic Reporter (NCR) is a liberal Catholic publication that cannot be trusted (as opposed to the National Catholic Register, which usually can.)

Randall Terry says Archbishop Wuerl covers for pro-abortion Catholic politicians

In open opposition to the Vatican directive, Archbishop Wuerl and dozens of other U.S. bishops – including prominent prelates such as Cardinal Sean O’Malley of Boston and Cardinal Francis George of Chicago – say that the local bishop can decide whether or not to withhold Communion from those responsible for abortion. Some say the decision depends on “pastoral style;” others claim they are trying not to “politicize Communion.” After the excuses are proffered, they proceed to give the blood of Christ to those whose hands are covered with the blood of babies.

Our question to Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone and other church leaders in Rome was simple: “Who is right? Cardinal Ratzinger, or Archbishop Wuerl? They cannot both be right.”

Archbishop Wuerl has tried to write himself a “pass,” stating that these errant Catholic politicians are the problem of the bishops of their home dioceses and are merely guests in his archdiocese. However, His Excellency is the chief shepherd of the territory assigned to him and the chief presider of the Eucharist. He is therefore canonically responsible for what happens in his diocese regarding those who approach to receive the Eucharist.

We told our Vatican hosts that the fruit of Archbishop Wuerl’s “collegial treachery” is that the teaching of the church is marginalized, the murder of babies is minimized and Holy Communion is trivialized. The message sent is that killing babies isn’t so bad; Holy Communion isn’t so sacred.
