Defying the culture of death
December 13th, 2016
By Laurette Elsberry

The Dec. 1 front-page article on the “post-election animus” certainly shows the U.S. bishops in a poor light. It appears that they are all in an uproar now that the socialists’ gravy train may be slowed and the taxpayers (workers) may have some relief from the burden of an increasingly hostile economy and culture. While the article stated that “Trump said some things that proved hurtful and worrisome to groups of Latinos and black Catholics,” what should be pointed out is that the current administration and the one that the bishops hoped for – a continuation of the Clintonian struggle for socialism and abortion – has been supporting every avenue to promote abortion, even promoting the placement of abortion “clinics” in minority neighborhoods.

What will it take to wake up American clergy that the greatest danger to our country is the death of the faith and the worship of the culture of death?
