Retired CCHD Organizer Bishop John E. McCarthy comes out against USCCB on health care overhaul

More nonsense from the Catholic Campaign for Developing everything human except children in the womb crowd…

 In 2007 St. Edwards University, a Catholic academic institution located in Austin, Texas, ignored Bishop Gregory Aymond and refused to withdraw an speaking invitation to Charles Curran from the John E. McCarthy Lecture Series.

According to Life Site News:

Father Curran is a Catholic priest who has long been in opposition with several of the Church’s fundamental moral teachings. Because of his aggressive and vocal condemnation of the Church’s teachings on matters such as abortion, contraception, and homosexuality, Curran was investigated by the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s

For story context remember: It was Retired Bishop John E. McCarthy, (the lecture series name-sake), who extended the invitation to Curran to speak…

WASHINGTON — A retired Catholic bishop is announcing his support for President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, despite the church’s official opposition.

Retired Bishop John E. McCarthy of Austin told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he is as opposed to abortion as every other bishop and that the bill before Congress would guard against the use of taxpayer funds to pay for it. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, however, says the restrictions don’t go far enough.

McCarthy says the church has been pushing to cover the uninsured for 40 years, and Obama’s bill is the closest the nation has come to achieving that goal. Lawmakers can improve on the legislation later, he says, “but let’s not kill it at this crucial moment.”

  1. History tells of of many cultures that were ready to sacrificy a few lives to ensure the properity and health of the people. How is this test of our countries entegrity much different? So a few abortions get done and are paid for by our tax dollars. Isn’t the greater good of the countries uninsured more important?

    Reason how you will, I am not comfortable presenting that argument to the God that sent his only Son to pay the debt of my sins.

    May God have mercy on this country!

  2. We Catholic cannot be effective if we remain “johnny-one-notes” on the abortion and same-sex marriage issues.

  3. Again I ask… when will we wake up and ostracize these heretics?
    I pray that the Mother of God will remove the smoke of Satan from our Church.
    May God have mercy on this nation.

    1. Sheryl, I believe this is a time of purification… Confusion about the Way, obscuration of the Truth, and loss of Catholic faith and morals. Yet, the Cross proves the point of God’s effectiveness when all appears lost… As for heretics: All the errors must be addressed. Which we try to do here. My prayers at Holy Mass: “Return of the children of Holy Mother Church, and conversion of all Her enemies. The Blessed Virgin Mother of God accomplishes this… Her Heart will triump in the end. Admittedly, patience is a gift I need to pray for…

      Yours in the faith,
