A few days ago, the New York Catholic newspaper The Washington Post published an article titled, “Donald Trump’s Muslim Ban Is a Racial Problem.”
This is a newsworthy story about a serious issue that is a direct threat to the future of our country.
It is also an incredibly timely article because, like a lot of other things on the agenda of the Trump administration, it has been largely ignored by the Catholic press.
The Post article is a perfect example of how the Catholic news industry has failed to understand and respond to the threat posed by the Trump presidency.
The article is also a perfect demonstration of the need for the Catholic media to take a stand against the Trump agenda.
It explains that the President’s Muslim ban has “a deeply troubling racial dimension.”
The article further explains that Trump’s decision to bar Muslims from entering the country will “send a chilling message to Muslims around the world that the United States will tolerate any form of discrimination.”
In short, the Post article paints a picture of a very serious issue, but the Catholic Catholic media has ignored it because it doesn’t fit into their narrative about Trump.
And this is precisely what the Catholic bishops should do.
The Catholic news media needs to take up this issue and stand up for Catholic citizens against racism.
A few months ago, Pope Francis made the same statement in response to the news of the Muslim ban.
“The Muslim ban must not be allowed to go forward,” the Pope said at the time.
“I do not want to be seen as endorsing discrimination against anyone because of their religion.
This is not a good example to teach young people about human rights.
We must be clear about this.”
So, what exactly is the Catholic Church teaching about the Muslim Ban?
As it happens, the Catholic leaders who wrote the Washington Post article have an excellent understanding of the issues.
And their understanding is well informed by their own experience.
They are members of the Catholic College of Cardinals and have been in the Church for decades.
And in many ways, their understanding of Catholic teachings on racism is better than the mainstream media.
For example, when they are asked about the policy of the Church that the pope says is a “black hole” that will prevent us from “dealing with the world” (as if racism was somehow something that is somehow beyond our reach), they point to Pope Francis’ words from a few years ago when he called for the Church to “seek the truth, not those who wish to distort it.”
Pope Francis did not just say that the Church needs to seek the truth; he also said, “To be open to the truth is to live in peace with it.”
This approach is very different from the approach of many journalists, who have a preconceived view of the world and do not take into account the experiences of people of color.
This has to change.
We are not going to change unless we have the courage to speak up.
And we can only do that by speaking up.
As the bishops pointed out, it is not the job of the journalists to decide who gets to speak and who does not.
It’s up to us to stand up and fight.
The fact that they chose to write the article about the Catholic leadership in response, however, is deeply disappointing.
It should be no surprise that many Catholic leaders are not standing up for the rights of the minority that is under attack by the President.
The Vatican has consistently defended discrimination against Catholics because of the religion of their parents.
And Pope Francis has consistently called for “a just and peaceful society.”
So it is very concerning that the Catholic leader who wrote this article is in the position of writing about this.
In a recent interview with Catholic News Service, the Rev. James F. Walsh, a senior adviser to Pope Benedict XVI and a former archbishop of Philadelphia, said: “The Church’s leadership should be guided by a sense of solidarity with those who suffer from the grave injustice of this administration.
The Church’s response to racism and discrimination must be part of a broader vision of justice and social justice.”
That’s what the Pope was saying when he said we should stand up to racism, and what the bishops are saying when they call for a Catholic “political conscience” in the face of discrimination.
In short: the Catholic political leadership must speak up and defend the rights and dignity of the majority.
But there is one more important thing the bishops should be doing.
In the midst of all the confusion over Trump’s immigration ban, they should speak out and call out those who are acting in bad faith.
They should make it clear that they believe the religious freedom of Catholics must be respected.
The media and politicians who are trying to undermine the religious freedoms of Catholics should not be the ones who should be condemning the bad faith of their political opponents.
They shouldn’t be allowed on the airwaves or in the halls of Congress to use this issue as an excuse to promote discrimination against Catholic Americans.
The time for the political leaders to
