Bishops of India Condemn “Senseless” Media Criticism of Pope over Condom Statement

By Thaddeus M. Baklinski NEW DELHI, March 30, 2009 (LIfeSiteNews.com) – The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India (CBCI) has condemned the recent deluge of media criticism of Pope Benedict XVI as “senseless” and “irresponsible,” and appealed for more respect for the Pope. The Indian Bishops’ statement comes in response to the widespread denigration of the Pope that followed the Holy Father’s recent statement during a press conference that condoms are not the solution to AIDS, and that, in fact, they “risk increasing the problem.” (See: World Leaders, Condom-Promoting Forces Attack Pope Over Condom AIDS Remarks, https://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2009/mar/09031902.html) In a press statement, […]

Commentary: Closing Ranks on Canon 915: Bishops Confirm that Sebelius Should Not Receive Communion

Commentary by Deal W. Hudson       Gov. Kathleen Sebelius received some good news last week when abortionist Dr. George Tiller was found not guilty of breaking state laws regulating late-term abortion. The relationship between Tiller and Sebelius would surely have played a role in her upcoming confirmation hearings had he been found guilty.  But Governor Sebelius got some bad news as well—something not noticed much in Catholic media or the secular press. The bishops of Washington, D.C., and Arlington, Virginia, confirmed publicly they would uphold the declaration of her ordinary, Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City, stating that Governor Sebelius […]

EDITORIAL: In the Face of Mounting Evidence, D&P Says: “Nothing Could be Farther from the Truth”

March 30, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Development and Peace (D&P) fiasco has spiraled out of control in ways we at LifeSiteNews.com (LSN) could not have envisioned.    Since LSN first broke the story that the Canadian bishops’ official development arm is funding pro-abortion groups in Mexico, there have been some who have accused LSN of pursuing a deliberate and malicious agenda to target D&P during their largest fundraising season. This, however, is not the case. About a month ago, in the lead-up to the Lenten fundraising season, LSN was asked by a notable reader if D&P had cleaned up its […]
