- Apparently, some USCCB staffer made a remark that seemed to be pro-Trump, and so she was forthwith fired from her job.
- Apparently, some USCCB staffer made a remark that was pro-Kamala Harris and nothing happened whatsoever.
The USCCB is just a bunch of pro-abortion fanatics, bullying others with their blatant partisan pro-death politics into making sure that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are elected.
That’s all to be expected. Jesus picked Judas also because He wanted to make sure that we knew that He understood. He suffered this kind of betrayal of Life.
Still, what surprises me is that there are apparently good Catholics who insist that the hypocritical policies of the USCCB are to be followed. Count me out. This priest is not going to be politically correct with those who promote the killing of the image of God in the womb. Ain’t gonna happen.
Some wimps say: “I was forced into compromise, betrayal, sin.” That is simply never true. What do any of us have to lose for continuing to do all that is righteous and just and merciful? Our lives? Pfft! We will gain our lives in heaven because of our witness to Jesus who is Life.

Yuck. I would rather be tortured to death.
- “Father Byers, you don’t understand! We have power! We can have you shut down, silenced. We’ll call you an apostate, a schismatic, an excommunicate – splutter splutter – unless you promote our pro-abort candidates, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. We’ll make sure you are removed from you parish, thrown on the street, a wanderer, accursed. We’ll make sure to make your life HELL!”
Pfft! Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn said that he was not afraid of any torture to which he was subjected. Rather, he was afraid that, while looking into the eyes of his torturer he saw no conscience. But I say that we are not to fear even such as that – and I have seen that in the eyes of pro-abort politician-torturers of the unborn that zero-conscience thing. Instead, we are to look into the eyes of Christ Jesus and see that He has seen the zero-conscience thing in all, from Adam until the last man is conceived, and we are to see that Jesus was not afraid even of that. Better, when Jesus’ eyes close in death (like the Master, so the disciple), let’s look into the eyes of Jesus’ Immaculate Mother so as to see that she also was not afraid:
