So much for any defence of Catholic doctrine in the USCCB Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life & Youth.
From Happy Despite Them
By Leila Marie LawlerThis is the bishop who refused to say that gay marriage needs to be overturned -- who said, with that confidence in his own political savvy that only a bishop can display, that the time is not opportune to try (he has no plan for when the right time would be). Who doubled down on, in his words, not focusing on "pelvic issues."
And just how is he going to defend marriage? His sympathies lie with the gays, not with vulnerable youth.
He is on record as not wanting to deal with any aspects of LGBT influence on the culture.
On my own Facebook page and on his official one, I asked him why he doesn't follow and teach (as a bishop) Church teaching on homosexuality and why he fails the victims of surrogacy and trafficking in human flesh; I got blocked for my efforts.
Bishop Barron is more of a threat to marriage and family life than James Martin SJ, who certainly is not set to chair the bishops' committee on those topics.
