The U.S. bishops conference, USCCB, now has six new committee chairmen. Yesterday, the bishops considered 12 nominees for the conference's committees, choosing six to lead functions ranging from budget and finance to migration. Church Militant's William Mahoney has more on the winners, who are mostly losers.
Metuchen bishop James Checchio beat Seattle's archbishop Paul Etienne for the finance committee.
As rector of the North American College seminary in Rome, Checchio recommended for Holy Orders homosexuals and men like Sacramento's excommunicated priest Jeremy Leatherby, who preyed on married women.
Lansing bishop Earl Boyea beat Abp. Samuel Aquila for the vocations committee.
Boyea is reported to favor the homosexual network in the Church.
Bishop Steven Lopes of Houston's Personal Ordinariate beat St. Louis archbishop Mitchell Rozanski for the worship committee.
Lopes is considered by many to be orthodox.
He's the first bishop of the Ordinariate, a structure Pope Benedict XVI established in 2012 to bring former Anglicans into the Catholic Church.
Borys Gudziak, head of Philadelphia's Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy, beat Bp. Thomas Paprocki for the social justice committee.
In 2020, one whistleblower priest in the Ukranian chancery accused Gudziak of lying about immigration and backing the homosexual agenda at a Catholic university in Ukraine.
In 2019, Notre Dame awarded Gudziak for his work in Ukraine.
Los Angeles auxiliary bishop Robert Barron beat Dallas bishop Edward Burns for the family committee.
One retired LAPD officer who's tried to work with the prelate spoke to Church Militant, calling Barron "a phony."
El Paso bishop Mark Seitz beat Miami archbishop Thomas Wenski for the migration committee.
With the possible exception of Bp. Steven Lopes, the new appointments show the bishops will not be accompanying faithful Catholics anytime soon.
