Dear Archbishop Wuerl:
Over 30 of your brother Bishops have spoken out against the abomination of Notre Dame's invitation to President Obama. Some have been very polite and others have come out and laid it on the line. No matter how they have said it, you have not thrown your biretta in the ring (so to speak). Over 300,000 other Catholics have spoken out against this.
Are you worried that by speaking out you will loose any chance of saving the DC Opportunity Scholarships?
Are you worried that the Archdiocese will not obtain any Federal funding for any of our social programs?
Are you hoping that by being silent, the social justice crowd will join you in support of Catholic schools and scholarships?
Are you hoping that by being silent you will help to change immigration policy?
Are you hoping that by being silent, the lifting of the conscience clause on Catholic medical providers will stay in place?
Are you hoping that by remaining silent, you will contiue to receive large Forward in Faith donations?
Let me put to rest those fears to rest once and for all.
President Obama and the Democratic Party couldn't care less what you do or do not think, as long as you allow him to continue to co-op your priests, religious and lay people to get what he wants. And you are doing just what he wants.
Oh, and forget the social justice crowd. There has not been a peep out of them on the DC Opportunity Scholarships, abortion, etc. They are just a bunch of noise makers.
Your brother bishop in NYC has made his voice clear on this matter.
It is your turn.
You are the local bishop in the Nation's Capital. Stand Up. Raise your voice.
Raise your voice.
Be silent no more!
