A few days ago, it was reported that Cardinal George, president of the USCCB, criticized the Catholic Health Association for lending support to the Obama Hell Bill. Frankly, I was rather pleased to hear that. Yes, it was "too little too late", but at least some protest was uttered - or so I thought!
Today we hear that Helen Osman, secretary for communications for the USCCB, charged the Catholic News Agency with dishonesty in its coverage of Cardinal George's remarks on the Hell Bill. She claims that the Cardinal never made such remarks.
Alejandro Bermudez, director of the CNA, challenged Osman to release the recording of Cardinal George's talk. She refuses to do so because it's "confidential". I echo my friend at Les Femmes as she asks, "what's the big secret?"
