Bishops in the USA are going to have to decide what to do about Catholic politicians who are openly causing scandal by taking a position against the natural law and the Church’s teachings either by public acts or by private choices which are nevertheless quite public.
I learned this today from the Cardinal Newman Society which keeps an eye on Catholic schools.
Scranton’s Bishop Joseph Bambera issued an important statement today. Following The Cardinal Newman Society’s report that Jesuit University of Scranton’s intended lecturer for an event has been very active supporting abortion rights, Bishop Bambera contacted the University and issued a statement of disapproval. [The person in question is former Rep. Marjorie Margolies (D-PA), Jewish, not Catholic.]
Bishop Bambera expressed his “concern regarding the University’s evolving relationship with me as Bishop of the Diocese of Scranton.” See his full quote here: http://www.timesleader.com/news/Bishop-.html
WDTPRS kudos to Bp. Bambera.
Former Rep. Margolies is not Catholic, but there are plenty of pro-abortion Catholic politicians who are given free rein. That has to stop.
