Bishop Paprocki dissents from USCCCP on Supreme Court ruling on union dues

[“Breaking ranks with the pack”; IMHO he rather than Cupich should have succeeded Cardinal George in Chicago where as chancellor he knew “what was what” and as archbishop could have “set things right”! – AQ TOM]

Catholic World News – 7/6/18

Taking issue with a statement from the US bishops’ conference, Bishop Thomas Paprocki of Springfield, Illinois has expressed his support for a Supreme Court decision in the Janus v. AFSCMEcase, which ruled that public-sector employees cannot be required to pay dues to unions of which they are not members. While the US bishops’ conference lamented the decision, citing the “long-held view of so many bishops” in support of unions, Bishop Paprocki observed that this support should have limits. Noting that AFSCME and many other unions have supported abortion, he reasoned that “unions should not expect the unquestioning support of the Church when their objectives are contrary ‘to the duties of religion and morality.’”
