The bishops' betrayal

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops comes out foursquare against the poor, Hispanics and women. And this in spite of there being no federal funding for abortion. In the end, this wasn't about being pro-life. It was, rather, the last gasp of extremist, rich white, Republican forces in the U.S. Catholic Church. Their days are numbered. Today Catholic bishops made their formal break with Hispanics, by far the fastest growing component of the U.S. Catholic population.   I hope some Protestant Hispanic ministers recognize the opportunity this betrayal represents.
