TRANSCRIPT

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops wrapped up its Fall General Assembly in Baltimore yesterday. But the prelates don't have much to show for it.

Church Militant's Aidan O'Connor takes a closer look at what the bishops accomplished.

At their fall assembly Tuesday, the U.S. bishops discussed America's moral crisis.

But the bishops chose not to issue, ahead of the 2024 presidential election, a new version of the USCCB's voting guide "Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship."

The conference of prelates voted to push down the road whether to make any changes, despite the widespread approval of abortion and fake-Catholic politicians witnessed in this month's midterms.

Homosexualist Bp. John Stowe of Lexington pointed to the so-called capitol insurrection and COVID-19 — claiming it would be irresponsible not to address the divisions in our nation.

Heterodox California Cdl. Robert McElroy also drew attention to the "crisis of democracy."

Meanwhile, Bp. Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas, suggested dubbing November "faithful citizenship month" — urging Catholics to vote with consideration for life, family and religious freedom.

Bp. Joseph Strickland, diocese of Tyler, Texas: "We've got to do a better job of getting it into the hearts and minds of the people."

Auxiliary bishop of Washington Mario Dorsonville shilled for accepting illegal immigrants, lamenting, "The most vulnerable will suffer."

This, while babies are being murdered in the womb every day, and pro-abortion politicians continue to receive Our Lord in Holy Communion.

Based on the fall assembly, it appears forming consciences is not a priority of most American bishops.

In a puzzling move, the U.S. bishops in charge of evangelization announced they were able to cut in half funding for their own nationwide "eucharistic revival."
