BALTIMORE, Maryland (LifeSiteNews) — The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) will not revise its voting guide until after the 2024 election.

The guide, titled “Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship,” calls abortion the “preeminent” issue for Catholic voters.

It states:

The threat of abortion remains our preeminent priority because it directly attacks life itself, because it takes place within the sanctuary of the family, and because of the number of lives destroyed. At the same time, we cannot dismiss or ignore other serious threats to human life and dignity such as racism, the environmental crisis, poverty and the death penalty.

“Gathered in Baltimore for their annual fall assembly, the bishops voted Wednesday to keep the guidance the same but include a new introduction and ‘supplemental inserts, to be ready before the 2024 election,” the Catholic News Agency reported.

As reported on LifeSiteNews, Pope Francis has appointed outspoken pro-abortion economist Mariana Mazzucato to be one of the new “Ordinary Academicians” for the Pontifical Academy for Life (PAV). 

In addition to being a speaker at the World Economic Forum – the globalist group behind the socialist, anti-Christian “Great Reset” agenda – Mazzucato is enthusiastically pro-abortion, in direct contradiction to unchangeable teaching of the Catholic Church! 

SIGN: Pope Francis must remove Mazzucato from the PAV - the unborn deserve champions of life, not death! 

Mazzucato’s appointment contradicts the PAV’s statutes. While the statutes say that members can be of any religion, new Academicians must “commit themselves to promoting and defending the principles regarding the value of life and the dignity of the human person, interpreted in a way consonant with the Church’s Magisterium.”  

Mazzucato’s appointment was defended not only by the PAV, but by Francis himself. In an interview on Sunday, November 6th, the Pope confirmed that he had personally picked the pro-abortion economist as an addition to institution: “And now I have put Marianna Mazzucato in the Pontifical Academy for Life. She is a great economist from the United States. I put her there to give a little more humanity to it.”  

Pope Francis’ appointment of one who is so radically against the precepts of the Church causes nothing but confusion for the Faithful – this is a source of scandal. 

SIGN: Pope Francis must remove Mazzucato from the PAV - this scandal in the Church must stop! 

In a time where leftist elites are continually attacking Christian values, we need strong pro-life and pro-family warriors to champion Catholic values in the public square. Mazzucato is NOT the person who should be on the PAV. 

The Pope and the PAV think they can corrupt Catholic values with the excuse of giving the Church “a little more humanity.” The Catholic Church’s teaching on abortion is a non-negotiable issue – abortion disregards the sanctity of human life and the Pope know that this is an intrinsic evil.  

Don’t let Francis and the PAV get away with this! We must take a stand to ensure this attack on the Catholic faith comes to an end.   

ADD YOUR NAME to the growing list of REAL pro-life and pro-family warriors – tell Pope Francis to take back his nomination of radical pro-abortion Mazzucato to the Pontifical Academy for Life!

Heterodox bishops objected to this approach.

“Bishop John Stowe, OFM, of Lexington, Kentucky, said revisions were needed in time for the next election to take account of the attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6 and the division and polarization in the country. ‘I think the time [to revise the document] is now,’ he said,” according to the Catholic news outlet.

Bp. Stowe has endorsed the LGBT agenda and also cracked down on both the Traditional Latin Mass (TLM) and Novus Ordo masses said ad orientem. Stowe has a history of pro-LGBT activity, which includes issuing a homosexual “pride” “prayer card” insinuating that God approves of homosexuality and transgenderism. He also banned priests who did not take the abortion-tainted COVID jabs from ministering to the sick and housebound. Despite his criticism of “polarization,” Stowe quickly condemned the Covington Catholic high school students who were wrongly accused of swarming and harassing a Native American man at the March for Life in 2019.

Cardinal Robert McElroy, another supporter of the LGBT agenda, also objected to the decision.

The San Diego cardinal “echoed [Bp. Stowe’s] remarks, adding that people are ‘uneasy’ and looking for guidance on how to govern themselves ‘in a way that divisions and bigotry are not the hallmarks’ of our political system.”

Cdl. McElroy “has sparked outrage for celebrating ‘LGBT Masses,’ rebuking the Church’s position on homosexual acts, urging Catholic funeral rites for active homosexuals, and throwing his support behind dissident Jesuit Fr. James Martin while blasting conservatives’ ‘destructive’ attitudes on sexuality,” LifeSiteNews previously reported. “No bishop has defended giving Communion to pro-abortion politicians as vigorously as McElroy, who equates abortion with ‘climate change’ and rejects the idea that abortion is the singular, ‘pre-eminent’ moral issue facing the U.S. Church.”

Cdl. McElroy also eliminated two of three TLM churches in his diocese.
