From his Sept 1st posting on his blog, the bishop of St Petersburg (FL) says, "I am ashamed to say that the Catholic Church in the United States sadly gave President George W. Bush largely a free pass in Iraq."
His Excellency would do far better to be ashamed that he himself gave the proverbial "free pass" to Michael Schiavo as the latter went about murdering his invalid wife Terri within the borders of the Diocese of St. Petersburg. His conduct eighteen years ago was an absolute debacle, coming from a successor to the Apostles. I too oppose the proposed strike in Syria, but Bishop Lynch's words ring hollow and shallow in light of his gross dereliction of duty towards Terri Schiavo.
