'Obama win loss for U.S. bishops'

 |  NCR Today

NCR frequent contributor, Vincent Miller, Gudorf Chair of Catholic Theology and Culture at the University of Dayton, has written an opinion piece on the CNN website this morning that President Obama’s narrow victory among Catholic voters Tuesday will be seen by many as a political loss for the U.S. Catholic bishops who appeared to be openly opposing Obama during the presidential campaign.

The technically nonpartisan nature of the Church’s religious liberty campaign, Miller writes was further drowned out by a small chorus of strident bishops who left no doubt about how Catholics ought to vote for president.
