The following is a Catholic Action League of Massachusetts action alert…
The Bishop of Worcester, the Most Reverend Robert J. McManus, is the target of a vicious, mendacious and defamatory smear campaign orchestrated by media wolves, LGBT militants and pro-abortion politicians.
In the last two weeks, there have been, at least, twenty hostile newspaper articles and biased television news reports maligning him. The Bishop has even been accused—absurdly and unjustly—of “perpetuating violence.”
His only crime: upholding moral sanity, biological reality and perennial Catholic teaching in his own diocesan schools.
The Bishop’s courageous instruction on gender and sexuality—rooted in Divine Revelation and Natural Law—exhorts students to the Christian virtue of modesty and the capital virtue of chastity, prohibits expressions of same sex attraction, and expects students to conduct themselves at school in a manner consistent with their biological sex.
For this, Bishop McManus is being slandered, vilified and demonized.
There is relentless, mounting and organized pressure on the Bishop, and upon his Superintendent of Schools, Doctor David Perda, to revoke or water down the instruction.
It is vitally important that Bishop McManus and Doctor Perda know that they are not alone in this controversy, that faithful Catholics, other Christians who believe in Biblical morality, and many persons of goodwill support them in preserving Christian principles in Catholic schools.
Please contact Bishop McManus and David Perda and tell them that you support them, commend them and stand behind them!
Please tell them that you want them to go forward with the new instruction announced on the Feast of the Assumption, August 15th!
You may reach Bishop McManus at [email protected] or at 508-929-4345.
Doctor David Perda may be reached at [email protected] or at 508-929-4317.
August 28th was the Feast of Saint Augustine, the Doctor of Grace, who reminded us, 1,600 years ago, that “Whoever wishes to be a friend of this world, says Scripture, will be reckoned an enemy of God.”
Bishop McManus has demonstrated that he would rather endure the enmity of this world than lose the friendship of God.
Please let him know that you support him.
