The American Bishops and USCCB

Christ’s faithful are at liberty to make known their needs, especially their spiritual needs, and their wishes to the Pastors of the Church. They have the right, indeed at times the duty, in keeping with their knowledge, competence and position, to manifest to the sacred Pastors their views on matters which concern the good of the Church.  They have the right also to make their views known to others of Christ’s faithful, but in doing so they must always respect the integrity of faith and morals, show due reverence to their Pastors, and take into account both the common good and dignity of individuals. —Code of Canon Law, 212

As mentioned in my Pope Francis post, I will always be Catholic.  However, as I seek the whole truth about the state of the Church, I realized I could not get the full picture from mainstream Catholic sources alone.  Mainstream Catholic media will tend to minimize any criticism of the Pope and the Bishops because, to be frank, their livelihood depends on not ruffling the feathers of their primary information sources.  So I incorporate additional “rogue” sources into my research.

Below is a summary of what I have come to believe about the American Bishops and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), and why they are a bitter disappointment.

  1. They have failed to make any meaningful reforms to bring sexually abusing priests to justice

  3. The Elephant in the Room the Bishops Refuse to Address – Homosexuality in the Clergy – Complicit Clergy  (10/31/21)
  4. They have failed to bar Catholic politicians who obstinately support abortion from Holy Communion.
  5. They have failed to reprimand liberal Catholic priests like the Assoc. of U.S. Catholic Priests (AUSCP) and Fr. James Martin
  6. They have failed to call Pope Francis to account regarding the Pachamama idolatry in the Vatican, October 2019.
  7. They buckled under political pressure and closed churches in most dioceses during Lent & Holy Week 2020; in many cases withheld sacramental confession and even baptism and last rites for several weeks.
  8. Many of them push the faithful to get the abortion-tainted COVID-19 vaccines
  9. They have failed to reprimand other Bishops and the Pope when they contradict church teachings established for centuries.
  10. Many of them promote or at least tolerate liberal, unjust organizations like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.
  11. The Bishops’ Misapplication Of Catholic Charity On Our Southern Border (thefederalist.com)  (9/24/21)
    • More than any other religious group, it is America’s Catholic bishops who lend moral support and cover to the current border situation.  How? Through their promotion to open borders — a strict adherence that warps God’s call to love our neighbors, and misunderstands the criminal situation at the border.  Any step the United States might take to enforce its immigration laws, the bishops oppose it — loudly and swiftly.
    •  “The [USCCB] collected $50 million for migration and refugee services for the year 2020, most of which came from the federal government,” Lepanto Institute President Michael Hichbor told the news site Church Militant. “During that same period,” he added,” the U.S. bishops collected a meager $777,000 for pro-life activities.”
    • While we have an ordered call to charity, we don’t have a religious duty to have no nations, no laws, and no order.
    • God does not call us to violate just laws for charity, understanding we cannot extend good deeds to everyone on earth… no single teaching obscures the others to the detriment of the good; justice, charity, and mercy all must be weighed.  The Bishops have not paid proper heed to the harmful effects this charity without justice has had on the lives of the vulnerable.
    • The results of these mistakes are painful, are deadly, and are on our border every day and night. On this, there can be no confusion; it’s time for our church to recognize it.

  12. 39% of 2016 Diocesan funding comes from Federal Government which makes them beholden to the Deep State. Much of this is for “migrant and refugee services”.  As a result they support illegal immigration, while mostly turning a blind eye to abortion.
  13. They have failed to stop Catholic Relief Services and Catholic Charities from funding organizations which are blatantly anti-Catholic.
  14. They continue to promote the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) despite consistent evidence of deceptive funding schemes and grant fraud.

Why distrust the NIH, CDC, FDA and the WHO

The NIH, CDC, FDA, WHO & Bill Gates have their own agenda and it’s not about protecting our health. It’s about serving Big Pharma and amassing wealth.  And now even OSHA. Some examples:

  1. OSHA Changes Rule to Cover Up Vaccine Injuries (late May, 2021)
    • According to OSHA rules, employers must record and report work-related illnesses, injuries and fatalities. This recording requirement initially also applied to adverse reactions suffered by employees who had to get the COVID shot as a requirement for employment.
    • But as of May, 2021, OSHA will no longer enforce the recording requirement if the injury or fatality involves the COVID jab, even if required for employment. The nonenforcement will remain through May 2022. With this change, OSHA is covering up vaccine injuries — and hindering workers from seeking workers’ compensation

  20. More Pandemic Corruption: Refusal to Fully Recognize Natural Immunity (trialsitenews.com)  (6/13/21)
    • A recent study from the Cleveland Clinic found that individuals who have had SARS-CoV-2 infection and have natural immunity are unlikely to benefit from COVID-19 vaccination, and vaccines can be safely prioritized to those who have not been infected before.
    • One study, published in The Lancet’s journal EClinicalMedicine, examined data from antibodies in 39,086 individuals who tested positive for COVID-19 from March 2020 and January 2021. It found an “encouraging timeline for the development and sustainability of antibodies up to ten months from natural infection.” This latest study adds to a growing body of scientific evidence indicating that natural immunity is long-lasting even without vaccination.
    • Another study, in Nature, found that COVID-19 infection “induces a robust antigen-specific, long-lived humoral immune response in humans,” with antibodies “remaining detectable at least 11 months after infection.” Another, published at BioRxiv, found that even without vaccination, antibodies in the infected “remain relatively stable from 6 to 12 months,” while “B cell clones expressing broad and potent antibodies are selectively retained in the repertoire over time and expand dramatically after vaccination.” Another study from Israel found that natural immunity was slightly more effective against reinfection than the Pfizer vaccine, at 94.8% versus 92.8%.

  21. Judicial Watch: New FDA Records Show Purchases of Fetal Organs, Heads and Tissue for ‘Humanized Mice’ Project | Judicial Watch
    • On September 24, 2018, the Trump FDA terminated its contract with ABR for human tissue purchases and began an audit of its acquisitions of baby body parts.
    • “Chopping up aborted human beings for their organs and tissue is a moral and legal outrage,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “This issue should be front and center in any debate about America’s barbaric abortion industry.”
    • In February 2020, Judicial Watch first uncovered through this lawsuit hundreds of pages of records from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) showing that the agency paid thousands of dollars to a California-based firm to purchase organs from aborted human fetuses to create “humanized mice” for HIV research.
    • In May 2021, this lawsuit uncovered FDA records showing the agency spent tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars to buy human fetal tissue from ABR. The tissue was used in creating “humanized mice” to test “biologic drug products.” The records indicated the FDA wanted tissue purchases “Fresh; shipped on wet ice.”
    • On August 3, 2021, Judicial Watch announced that it and The Center for Medical Progress (CMP), through a separate lawsuit, received 252 pages of new documents from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that reveal nearly $3 million in federal funds were spent on the University of Pittsburgh’s quest to become a “Tissue Hub” for human fetal tissue ranging from 6 to 42 weeks’ gestation.
