In its ever-delusional idea of its own moral authority, Montana Roman Catholic Bishops are hosting a conference on “abortion, ‘assisted-suicide’ and euthanasia,” the AP reports today.
The Bishops seem incredibly eager to either change the subject away from the abuse allegations—or perhaps to ignore it.
Here’s the problem. Where are the overtures by the Bishops to work with these people to heal what the Church has done to them? Why is it a priority for the Bishops to go after the right of terminally ill Montanans? These are people who are in pain to choose to die in their own time and their own way. Why is it okay to insert themselves into the bedrooms and doctors’ offices of Montana women–forcing them to bear children against their will…but not to fix what the years and years of wreckage to the lives of those they’ve hurt?
Today, a second child sex abuse lawsuit was filed against the Helena Diocese.
