At US Catholic bishops conference, a deeper embrace of FrankenPope — and relevancy

[The FrankenPope effect takes effect on AmChurch!]

17 June 2018 – JACK JENKINS – Religion News Service

The spring meeting of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops is historically the less eventful of the American church leadership’s two annual gatherings. It tends to be sparsely attended, focused on ecclesiastic procedures and mostly, well, boring.

But this year’s meeting, at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa here, saw the bishops not only engaged in lengthy debates over the nature of their political voice but making headlines with their stern critique of the Trump administration’s immigration policies. read more

2018 US Bishops’ Spring Conference – One Only Wishes One Had a Tomato

Conquered by Love – 6/16/18

This year’s Bishops’ Spring prom was a First Place Blue Ribbon poop show of all episcopal poop shows.

They planned

1. another publicity stunt at the Mexican border

2. production of political propaganda to keep prolife/pro-God/pro-family/pro-moral theology politicians out of office – ‘apply the teachings of Pope Francis to our day’

3. conversations with youth about their favorite Netflix show

Can never get enough of Fr. Wilson’s quote from an article titled The Price of my Soul’s Salvation:Watching the bishops’ conference in action is like viewing the film of a train wreck over and over again. With bright-colored clowns hanging out the train windows, waving and blowing kisses. One only wishes one had a tomato. read more

The statement explains that the priests witness daily the crisis in family life and marriage,
