      Look at what the bishops make a big deal of and what they are only giving lip service to. They are acting as if they are a wholly-owned subsidiary of the far right.

      The GOP is the party of mammon. They mock what Jesus taught.

        Church hierarchy is anticipating another storm over alleged pedophilia involving priests again in the EU and Africa and this provides a smokescreen for them to hide behind as they try to whip the faithful laity into a froth over the issue/non-issue

        is a reference to individuals, many of whom do indeed "make a big deal of" issues like the death penalty and economic justice. If you are referring to the actions of the national conference of bishops, you might want to say so.

          There are a few left over from when being a right-winger was not a requirement, but the moderates are still letting Dolan and the rest of the righties claim to speak for them.
