Bishops Take a Dive

December 1981
National Review;12/11/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 24, p1461
The article deals with the intellectually bankrupt positions taken by the bishops of the U.S. Catholic Church that are bound to reduce their spiritual authority in 1981. It argues that their recommendation for the U.S. government to end its military assistance to El Salvador will put the lives of El Salvadorans into great risk. It also criticizes their opposition to nuclear weapons which would weaken the U.S. and the West.
