That's United States Conference of Catholic Bishops for you Protestants out there. I'm just wondering. I looked and didn't find anything. I saw some individual bishops say a few things. But nothing from the USCCB that I could find. I say that because:
You get the point. The George Floyd response was the Johnny-come-lately of the bunch, a whopping six days after his death. For others like the Orlando Pulse Nightclub shooting the official response was the same day.
But unless I'm missing it, we're four days out and nothing. Heck, they can join the transgender movement and insist the real victim was the shooter. At least it would be something. But right now I'm hearing a great big silence.
At least Pope Francis reached out and offered his condolences. If there has been a response from the USCCB I would happily concede the point. Walking back on this post is a far better thing than there not being a response, and the implications of such a difference in reactions.
UPDATE: 5:30 and all is not well. It's now five days since the horrific Nashville church school shooting. And I've found nothing from our brave bishops. Some individual bishops have spoken out. But nothing like the above and other similar responses.
UPDATE 2: It's Palm Sunday, that means six days since the shooting. The press has all but dropped it. The official transgender response is now '7 Victims' or, in some cases, only 1 real victim. And those are the nice transgender activist responses. I'm not giving up, but I'm beginning to doubt the bishops will respond at all. Few national religious leaders have. Those who have responded have avoided the obvious, or refused to call out the worst of the transgender rhetoric. So we'll see.
