National Catholic Reporter Declared Heretical, Poisonous, and NOT Catholic By Former Bishop.
Update: Editors comment: We recently presented this article on the National Catholic Reporter and its heretical ways. We included in this article a statement written by the late Bishop Helmsing back in 1968. We should have included some background information on the Bishop; our Lord called Bishop Helmsing home in 1977 but the truth in his statement still holds today. It was our intention to share this information with our readers and then have them contact the Catholic News Service and Catholic Relief Services and ask them to cease promoting the National Catholic Reporter on their social network and websites.
We apologize for any confusion that this may have caused our readers.
