USCCB Calls Evil What God Ordained As A Tool For Civil Order

Last week I posted how many leftists are putting their souls into jeopardy by calling evil what God has ordained as goods.  The USCCB continues down that slippery path.

Today Attorney General William Barr has announced that the US Department of Justice will resume the federal death penalty.  Right on cue the USCCB is pitching its hissy fit.  A telling phrase in the Catholic News Agency piece is this: "Catechism of the Catholic Church paragraph 2267 on the death penalty was updated in 2018 with a statement from Pope Francis, calling the death penalty “inadmissible because it is an attack on the inviolability and dignity of the person."

NEWS FLASH!  No one, not even a pope, can change Church teaching.  The pope is to safeguard the Deposit of Faith, not mutate it according to his whims and fancies.  Other popes throughout the centuries have upheld the legitimacy of the death penalty.  Pope John Paul II, in paragraph 56 of Evangelium Vitae, while making his personal disapproval known, also upheld the licity of the death penalty.

Any statement that claims that the death penalty is inherently evil is rank heresy.  It doesn't matter who utters it.


  1. There used to be an Office in the Vatican called the Papal Executioner!

  2. Here's a question for you and the USCCB, D.C.

    Did they (USCCB) throw the *same* kind of hissy fit whenever the states of N.Y. and Illinois legislated infanticide? Or did we hear crickets?

    (In defense of the N.Y. bishops, I understand they did in fact condemn the legislation - but what about our body of bishops in the USCCB?)

  3. The timing of Anti Pope’s decree is no coincidence. The timing of Barr’s reinstatement is no coincidence. Let’s hope that the arch criminals in both Church and State receive their just reward.

  4. He believes he can add to or subtract to Catholic teaching at will. This man puts himself on a par with Christ. Now he changes the words to the Our Father. I would even say there is really no evidence the man believes in Christ at all, he hardly references Him, as we know does not genuflect. He is hammering the flock with changes, because he can. As he said in his first year of his dictatorship "It's good to be pope!".
