Catholics to Protest Bishops in Baltimore during USCCB Meeting, November 9th and 10th

Contact: Randall Terry, Founder, Operation Rescue. 904-687-9804

BALTIMORE, Md., Nov. 7 /Christian Newswire/ -- Pro-life Catholics from Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and Pennsylvania will "welcome" Catholic Bishops to Baltimore with two days of protests, decrying the USCCB's silence and treachery concerning the unborn during the 2008 Presidential Election.

Some protesters will wear "Obama Masks" and hold signs saying: "Bishops: Thank you for your silence!" and "Bishops: I couldn't have been elected without You!" Other signs to be unveiled.

Randall Terry, Protest Organizer states: "A key factor in the election of Barack Obama was the silence of US Catholic Bishops. They had a duty to clearly and courageously defend the lives of unborn children; most of them failed miserably. Their silence and cowardice over the last 12 months paved the way for Obama's victory, and will cost millions of innocent babies their lives.

"The USCCB's document, 'Faithful Citizenship,' is a disaster. It was used by every pro-abortion Catholic in the country to justify voting for Obama. The double tragedy is that the Bishops ignored John Paul II's directives in 'Evangelium Vitae' (the Gospel of Life), and chose their own failed document to vindicate their silence and inactivity.

"God have mercy on them. Let's hope they recognize the abject failure of 'Faithful Citizenship,' and formally abandon it, or radically rewrite it in a way that accurately reflects Church Teaching."

Randall Terry, Founder, Operation Rescue.

Pro-lifers will provide media with Church documentation, showing conclusively that most U.S. Bishops clearly betrayed their duty, and unborn children. Thankfully, a handful a Bishops made clear statements; they will be acknowledged and honored.

Time to eliminate the U.S. Bishop's Conference. Each Ordinary has the sole responsibilty to guide his flock. Their failure as a group crippled Christ's church, as individuals they should hang their heads in shame. For a Priest to lose souls is a terrible thing. This sad illness began in the 60's when God was replaced by Man! Pope Benedict should place Apostolic Administrators in each Province to ensure that these "silly liberals" look more to the Cross than their pockets! jp (Bronx)

Those bishops who have transgressed against God and His flock by not clearly condemning the intrinsic evil of abortion should heed the Lord's warning in Jeremiah 23:1-2, "1 Woe to the shepherds who mislead and scatter the flock of my pasture, says the LORD. 2 Therefore, thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, against the shepherds who shepherd my people: You have scattered my sheep and driven them away. You have not cared for them, but I will take care to punish your evil deeds." See http://www.usccb.org/nab/bible/jeremiah/jeremiah23.htm.

As Jesus said in Matthew 23:13, "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites. You lock the kingdom of heaven before human beings. You do not enter yourselves, nor do you allow entrance to those trying to enter." See http://www.usccb.org/nab/bible/matthew/matthew23.htm.

Absolutely apropos to this situation and bringing the matter to cinematic life, the scene, "Woe to you, Scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites!" in Franco Zefferelli's movie "Jesus of Nazareth" is brilliant. See http://video.google.com/videosearch?hl=en&q=Woe+to+you+scribes+and+pharisees&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=X&oi=video_result_group&resnum=4&ct=title#.

I shudder for any shepherd who knowingly misguides the Lord's flock. When he finally stands before the Lord, he will be held to great account!
