Observations: The US Conference of Crocodilian Bishops

June 30th, 2021 | 4:55 AM | E436
EPISODE SUMMARY

The American bishops have failed to influence their society on the matter of abortion, they want to override the democratic system and replace it with themselves as a Catholic version of the ayatollahs who rule Iran by vetting candidates and policies. Father William J Grimm is a Maryknoll Missioner of 40 years’ experience in Asia-mostly Japan, Hong Kong and Cambodia reflects that unless those “weaponizing the Eucharist” can get their fellow bishops to unanimously agree, anything they come up with must be approved by the Vatican that already told them to slow down.
