Bishop Morlino (Diocese Madison) critiques Nuns On The Bus, defends Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI). INTERVIEW TONIGHT on EWTN! From Fr. Z’s Blog Posted on June 21 by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf I received this from the nice people who produce Raymond Arroyo’s The World Over news show on EWTN.
Below is a clip from an interview with the great Bishop Robert Morlino (D. of Madison) which will air on Thursday night 21 June 21 at 8pm ET.
This week the Nuns on the Bus campaign, (I wrote about that hilarious event HERE.) which has received lots of spittle-flecked positive coverage from the MSM, stopped in the Diocese of Madison in order to picket the offices of Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI – District 1 overlaps with the Diocese of Madison) in protest of Ryan’s budget plan. Bp. Morlino defends Cong. Ryan calling him a “responsible Catholic layman” who has created a budget “in accord with Catholic principles.” Bp. Morlino also calls out the Nuns on the Bus campaign, suggesting that the sisters should “witness holiness” “rather than busing around for political issues.”
Bishop Morlino is the first bishop to criticize directly Sr. Simone Campbell’s bus tour.
