Bishop George V. Murry of Youngstown, Ohio
Chairman of the ad hoc committee [USCCB] against racism.
Racism is such a sad reality but if you go no further than a highly popular political reality as it is. You simply sign on the USCCB to take sides with another secular cause!
Racism is the popular “whipping boy” now with the left – they love to “tar and feather” the right with this popular label since they know it is solid gold indefensible.
I hope at least that you Bishops know the smell of a rat when you encounter it because that is what is where you headed. You Bishops seem to desperately want to be “popular” with the culture and this is a super cause. It is filled with Satan and lies to divide and conquer the evil right. Why would you so instantly follow the secular left in this issue?
Racist populate left and right – white, yellow, red and black – young and old and on and on. No group owns the designation “racist” it is like any other sin and belongs to sinners around the globe. Have you not the courage to speak the truth of this fact? If you don’t, you make the Bishops simply another agency of the left in their racist hatred of the right.
If you want even the appearance of seeking truth, then the committee should be represented by as many races and ethnicity groups of people as possible.
What will be the end if you jump on the left’s bandwagon to tar and feather the “evil right” – labeling them as the racists? Do you not see that the far worse racism is to bless the left in their manifest hatred of the right? I cannot believe you Bishops have really prayed more deeply about this sin which men commit against their brothers!
With sincere care – Viva Jesu
