A game among journalists is a headline that would always be true. I would suggest “USCCB Never Fails to Disappoint”:
With the words “religious freedom” becoming ammunition in the ongoing culture wars, Catholic leaders hope a weeklong campaign titled “Serving Others in God’s Love” will shift the focus more toward essential human rights and dignity.
Religious Freedom Week is being led by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and begins on Friday (June 22), the feast day for Thomas More and John Fisher, the 16th-century Catholics martyred for their opposition to King Henry VIII’s split from Rome. The effort was previously a 14-day campaign known as “Fortnight for Freedom” but was shortened, a spokeswoman said, to “provide a more focused period to concentrate attention on this issue.”
The campaign includes support for the federal Child Welfare Provider Inclusion Act (H.R. 1881/S. 811), which the church said “would protect the religious liberty of child welfare service providers, including adoption and foster care agencies.” Opponents say it would allow discrimination, particularly against prospective adoptive and foster parents who are LGBT. Both versions of the bill have languished in subcommittees since 2017.
Catholic leaders will also draw attention to religious freedom crises around the world, officials said, as well as to their ability to provide services to undocumented immigrants.
Go here to read the rest. At The American Catholic we will go on with The Fortnight For Freedom. I am actually relieved that it will no longer be sponsored by the USCCB which often seems to understand freedom about as well as a pig understands penance.
