ProLifeCorner.com- By Staff- 1/28/2013- In a defiant statement issued by the National Catholic Reporter against Bishop Finn’s decision confirming they do not have the right to use the word Catholic in their masthead or identify themselves as an authentic Catholic publication the National Catholic Reporter is again falsifying the facts.
From the National Catholic Reporter Publisher Tom Fox, “NCR is proud to call itself a Catholic publication. We report and comment on church matters, including official teachings. We also report and comment on those who call into question some of these official teachings. Meanwhile, we belong to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishop’s sanctioned Catholic Press Association.”
In a phone call to the National Catholic Press Association (NCPA) Executive Director Timothy M. Walter placed on Monday Feb 28, Mr. Walter made it crystal clear the National Catholic Press Association in his words, “Is not sanctioned by the Bishops or the USCCB.”
Mr. Fox also said that the National Catholic Press Association (NCPA) is an “independent” organization and at a meeting on Feb. 21, 2013 the status of the National Catholic Reporter (NCR) membership will be taken into consideration.
Catholic Reporter does not belong to any Bishop or USCCB sanctioned press organization and the very fact that they feel the need to mislead people on this issue shows they know they are completely outside the Catholic Church.
It’s very difficult to take seriously anything the National Catholic Reporter prints when they distort and mislead the basic facts concerning our Bishops and the USCCB.
