Abuse of Authority by Church Leaders Against Me and My Work
I have always said to pro-life activists that if you defend the unborn, you will be treated like them. Just like their very being and legitimacy is denied, so will yours be. Just as they are excluded and mistreated, so will you be.
We all expect that the pro-abortion groups, like Planned Parenthood, will target, harass and try to intimidate us on the pro-life side. And they do try.
But fewer expect such treatment from bishops and other Church authorities. Yet there are some in the hierarchy who will do exactly that, and have done so to me for many years. Instead of supporting and encouraging the pro-life work of the Church, some of these men try to obstruct and hinder it, and abuse their authority to try to intimidate priests like me who make ending abortion the top priority of our lives.
Now I am not into complaining, nor publicly criticizing others. Nor do I want to distract you, my friends, from the key thing we have to be thinking about and discussing, which is the task of ending abortion. But to the extent that the actions of certain bishops get in the way of that work, I will speak. And to help our friends who have questions about how we are being treated by these bishops, and also to refute our enemies who love to make up their own stories about all this, I will speak about certain things here on this website so that you have the full story.
