Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 12-28-2012 – by James – The two headlines (on Dec. 27 2012) in a Catholic Newspaper, the National Catholic Reporter / web-site located in your diocese, declare a new inquisition is taking place in the Catholic Church. The National Catholic Reporter claims this new inquisition is driven by Pope Benedict and the Magisterium against defenseless nuns and theologians. Nuns and theologians in some cases work against the teachings of the Catholic Church.

This National Catholic Reporter from your diocese is working with The Global Post, which is funded by the Ford Foundation (the Ford Foundation gave Catholics for Choice a $300,000 grant) to produce and promote a series of articles which have no other purpose than to harm the Church through a distortion of facts. http://wdtprs.com/blog/2012/12/national-catholic-reporter-teams-up-with-ford-foundation-backed-entity-to-hide-the-truth-about-the-holy-sees-doctrinal-assesment-of-the-lcwr/
As you are well aware, the National Catholic Reporter has a long history of leading people astray.
We respectfully and humbly turn to you in the hope you will clarify if in fact the National Catholic Reporter has the right to identify itself and the dissenting teachings it promotes as Catholic in the Diocese of Kansas City.
Thank you for considering this request for a public statement so the faithful of the Church will know the truth.
Please consider respectfully contacting Most Reverend Robert Finn, DD about the status of the National Catholic Reporter in the Diocese of Kansas City. email@example.com
886 “The individual bishops are the visible source and foundation of unity in their own particular Churches.”As such, they “exercise their pastoral office over the portion of the People of God assigned to them.”
888 Bishops, with priests as co-workers, have as their first task “to preach the Gospel of God to all men,” in keeping with the Lord’s command.
They are “heralds of faith, who draw new disciples to Christ; they are authentic teachers” of the apostolic faith “endowed with the authority of Christ.”
889 In order to preserve the Church in the purity of the faith handed on by the apostles, Christ who is the Truth willed to confer on her a share in his own infallibility. By a “supernatural sense of faith” the People of God, under the guidance of the Church’s living Magisterium, “unfailingly adheres to this faith.”
