Bishops' Statement on Health Care Expected Soon

 |  NCR Today

Most everyone, it seems, has a view of the health care bill President Obama will sign today -- except the US Bishops. That will likely change today or tomorrow. The bishops' administrative committee is meeting in Washington and word is that a statement on the bill is forthcoming.

Meanwhile, one of their colleagues, Denver Archbishop Charles Chaput offers his view in the diocesan newspaper regular column. It is a "bad bill," writes Chaput, and a process "in which self-described 'Catholic' groups have done a serious disservice to justice, to the Church, and to the ethical needs of the American people by undercutting the leadership and witness of their own bishops."
