U.S. Bishops Try Putting Lipstick on a Pig

In one of the most pathetic responses we have seen so far, the official statement United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) issued the following statement Fiducia Supplicans:

“The Declaration issued today by the Vatican’s Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith (DDF) articulated a distinction between liturgical (sacramental) blessings, and pastoral blessings, which may be given to persons who desire God’s loving grace in their lives. The Church’s teaching on marriage has not changed, and this declaration affirms that, while also making an effort to accompany people through the imparting of pastoral blessings because each of us needs God’s healing love and mercy in our lives.”

That’s it.
