Virginia Bishops Help Defeat HB 112, Personhood of Preborn Children
Shame on the two Virginia bishops whose lobby arm was used to help defeat a bill recognizing the personhood of preborn children. These two bishops, Paul S. Loverde of Arlington and Francis DiLorenzo of Richmond, constantly lobby against the death penalty under all circumstances and in favor of more state aid for illegal immigrants, but could not stand up for the fundamental right to life of the innocent baby in the womb. . . more
Bishops' Lenten Appeals: Let them practice what they preach!
The big push for the diocesan Bishop's Lenten Appeal was today. It actually was scheduled for last week, but, with all the snow, the pastor postponed if for a week.
