Updated: The Texas Bishops’ Attack on Texas Right to Life: My Letter to Bishop Olson Requesting an In-Person Meeting to Discuss It
You may have heard that the Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops issued a “Parish Advisory on Texas Right to Life” last week basically banning them from any parish property and telling everyone that TxRTL lies, misrepresents the faith, etc. As set forth by Bishop Olson of Fort Worth – who seems to be the primary promoter of this, “The advisory regards the hostile position of Texas Right to Life towards the authentic Catholic teaching on the dignity of human life…” None of this is true and no specific examples are given. Indeed, when I mentioned this to Bishop Olson in a tweet, I received no response.
