Even IF the USCCB HAD condemned Mr. Ryan’s proposed budget,
it would mean really nothing binding,
because the USCCB has NO CANONICAL AUTHORITY on matters of Doctrine or morals or politics (unless they are repeating statements 100% in harmony with the teachings of the Magisterium).
I.e,. the USCCB is NOT the Magisterium,
and very often, “documents” issued by the USCCB are not even written BY
the Bishops themselves, but by “spokespersons” (usually un-named, interesting).
It is also a fact that many people who WORKED FOR the USCCB
in the 2000s, LEFT the USCCB and formed organizations of catholics supposedly
to promote the “common good.” These people, interestingly, are NOW MEMBERS
of the current administration (pro-abort and pro-gay-marriage, is this the common good?)
and some of them, the ones who helped FOUND these “common good” catholic
alliances and organizations, lo and behold, have made blaspehemous remarks
such as that gay marriage comes from God and/or revealed that they themselves are
proAbortion. SURPRISE !! Catholic voters in 2008 and 2010 got screwed-over by
these “Catholic” organizations founded by people whose views demonstrate them to be heretics and apostates and their goal was always, always, always to trick Catholics into voting for their proAbortion, pro other Sins, agenda. That was the purpose of founding these “catholic” alliances (allegedly for) “the common good.”
PLEASE, Catholics, do NOT be fooled by these wicked people anymore,
no matter what they call their new group,
no matter how much they appeal to “social justice”
no matter HOW stylishly they dress and coiff their hair,
no matter HOW BEAUTIFULLY they apply their expensive MAC makeup
no matter HOW “erudite” they sound at the “Press Conferences”
announcing their founding of their new groups
to promote the common good (sic) and fight “the politics of division.”
It’s a LIE, and it was ALWAYS a lie, a huge lie, by willful Liars
out to deceive a huge chunk of the Catholic Voting bloc,
which deception in 2008 and 2010 they successfully achieved,
and are GOING TO TRY TO successfully achieve AGAIN this year.
Watch out. They’re coming. And just in time for the elections.
