USCCB Proves Catholic Teaching Is Not Its Priority
For Immediate Release
Brown: “Most Catholic bishops have no problem with a Catholic politician spitting at the face of Christ by supporting the vile murder of the preborn.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. (09 November 2020) — American Life League (ALL) officials issued the following statements regarding the recent statement from the USCCB and its president, Archbishop Jose Gomez of Los Angeles, congratulating Joe Biden on his presidential victory over Donald Trump. Biden, who claims to be Catholic, is a longtime supporter of abortion and racist Planned Parenthood. The Catechism of the Catholic Church (Section 2270) clearly states that abortion is a moral evil and cannot be tolerated.
ALL president Judie Brown expressed her deep dismay by the actions of the USCCB:
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.
ALL executive vice president Hugh Brown acknowledged that the still-contested presidential race is not over, though it should shock no Catholic that the USCCB has congratulated Joe Biden as the winner:
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.
ALL executive director and STOPP founder Jim Sedlak expressed the unfortunate, yet true, fact that the USCCB has now become a political entity:
In issuing its congratulations, the USCCB calls on Catholics to COMPROMISE with regards to the law and public policy. For Catholics, the law is the Law of God as expressed in the 10 Commandments. Which commandments should we compromise on? Perhaps God really didn’t mean “Thou shalt not kill.” After all, Biden/Harris have spent all of 2020 telling us that, if elected, they would expand abortion in the United States. They also said they would restrict religious liberty. The clearest takeaway from the USCCB’s statement is the confirmation that they are now a political body issuing a politically correct statement. Calling on Biden/Harris to follow God’s law would have been more in line with the USCCB’s mission of aiding people to save their souls—a mission, it seems, the USCCB has sadly abandoned.
American Life League is the nation’s oldest grassroots, Catholic, pro-life organization. Its president, Judie Brown, has led the organization since its 1979 beginning. She has served three terms on the Pontifical Academy for Life—appointed twice by Pope John Paul II and again by Pope Benedict XVI.
