"The USCCB ought to be embarrassed."

"The USCCB ought to be embarrassed." These are the concluding words of a fine commentary by Mark Silk at RNS about Archbishop Lori's sad attempt to put an inter-denominational face on his one-man crusade against the HHS mandate. Sadly, too many at the USCCB have drunk the same Kool-Aid as +Lori and those bishops who harbor reservations about the course the conference is on are too few or too quiet. "We can't say anything that will harm the lawsuits," is the mantra. The lawyers may be working pro bono, but if they are keeping the bishops from voicing their misgivings about the excesses of Archbishop Lori's campaign, that is a very high price to pay.
