And More Deceit from the DNC…

For Catholics, it is no secret that the Pope and our United States Council of Bishops have vehemently opposed several acts of the Obama administration that openly attack our First Amendment Right of Freedom of Religion.  Included in these attacks are mandates that are contrary to the basic beliefs of, not only Catholics, but many Christian and Jewish religions.  Many protestant churches and Jewish synagogues have joined Catholics in their fight to maintain their outreach programs to the poor, sick and orphaned which have been threatened to be closed if the programs, hospitals, etc. do not adhere to the various mandates attached to Obamacare.

In an effort to dispel the backlash from the religious voters, the Democratic National Committee orchestrated a counter-measure to establish a conflicting opinion which was perpetrated as fact in order to deceive the public.  See article below from the National Association of American Lay Catholics:

Sr. Simone Campbell speaks at 2012 DNC Convention

Catholic Nun Bears False Witness Against Catholic Bishops at Democratic National Convention

Sister Simone Campbell of NETWORK (A national social justice lobby) and “Nuns on the Bus” fame spoke at the Democratic National Convention on September 5, 2012 in Charlotte, North Carolina.  In an effort to deceive Catholic voters, Sister Campbell opened her speech with the lie, that the Catholic Bishops stated the Ryan budget failed a basic moral test.

She falsely said:

“Paul Ryan claims his budget reflects the principles of our shared Catholic faith. But the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops stated that the Ryan budget failed a basic moral test, because it would harm families living in poverty.”

The problem is that the Catholic Bishops (Bishops’ Conference or United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB)) never stated this.
