LINCOLN, Neb., July 17, 2002 (LSN.ca) - Bishop Fabian W. Bruskewitz of Lincoln, Nebraska commented on the crisis in the Catholic church as being all about “dissent” in a recent interview on Eternal Word Television Network. Speaking with Raymond Arroyo of EWTN’s “The World Over” program, Bishop Bruskewitz said, “the whole problem quite frankly is precisely dissent” on issues of “sexual morality.”
The bishop noted his disappointment with the June bishops’ conference dealing with the sexual abuse matter. He noted that the voice of faithful Catholic laity was shut out of the conference. The two people present to represent the laity were “not at all” representative of faithful Catholic laity, he said, pointing out that one of the presenters - Margaret Steinfels - is an open dissenter to church doctrine on sexual matters.
Bishop Bruskewitz registered a complaint with the bishops conference regarding the two speakers. “I have better things to do with my time and money than to listen to Margaret Steinfels” he said.
