Tweets About the Bishops' Retreat: "Secrecy, Hypocrisy, and an Arrogant Refusal to Be Held Accountable

Posted on the 04 January 2019 by William Lindsey @wdlindsy
Things are likely to be tense when the US Catholic bishops meet at their closed-door retreat near Chicago this week. The credibility of the president of the U.S. bishops' was just called into question with the leak of a Vatican letter. https://t.co/myU3QVCBx1— Laurie Goodstein (@lauriegnyt) January 2, 2019
 
Here's a selection of tweets commenting on the U.S. Catholic bishops' retreat in Chicago — with one or two comments focusing on the state of the U.S. Catholic church in general: 
After bombshell @AP exclusive, the Bishops now face a two-fold crisis of credibility: 1) Their abysmal record on abuse 2) The US Cardinal at the helm was not forthcoming regarding the reason for Vatican “blocking” abuse proposals, even calling the decision “quizzical” #Mundelein pic.twitter.com/HkLePUVUst— Rich Raho (@RichRaho) January 1, 2019
 
A spokesperson from the US bishops conference tells me there are "about 250" bishops at the retreat, where bishops are reflecting on the sex abuse crisis. According to the USCCB website, there are 456 active and retired bishops in the US, part of 196 dioceses. https://t.co/UDLBwIroio— Michael J. O'Loughlin (@MikeOLoughlin) January 3, 2019

At the heart of the crisis in the Catholic Church is secrecy, hypocrisy, and an arrogant refusal to be held accountable to anyone
The @USCCB should release the full list of bishops attending this week's gathering mandated by the Pope, so that all can see who elected not to show— Michael Bayer (@mbayer1248) January 3, 2019
 
American Catholic Bishops just released a statement on migration that doesn’t even mention the policies of the Trump, or the crisis at the border.
SURREAL!!
Why release a statement in the first place if you’re not willing to tell the truth about what’s going on? https://t.co/crxgoSxAhR— Andrea Manea (@andrea_manea) January 4, 2019
