    for you, OIL GUY, but please see their delayed response as due to the inundation of scandals and the old woman and child hater resigning after he fought so hard to get the Papal post.  

    I give them zero credit.  These old white men are hateful and their legacy will be multiple schisms.

    Other than that, I hope you are well.

      princes of the church, but I do find their timing to be interesting. I suspect that they feared the backlash should they oppose a bill to protect women from domestic abuse.

      I think that they have become cautious after having essentially lost the battle over women's health and Obamacare. The President made some accommodations, but the bishops alienated women within their own church.

      Now they are offering their objections to VAWA because they can't help themselves, but are doing it in a manner that will attract almost no attention.

      I would love to see the bishops detach themselves from the political discourse. This episode seems like a positive sigh of that to me.
