Why Is The National Catholic Reporter Allowed To Be Called Catholic?

Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 12-4-2012 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – For years the National Catholic Reporter has been leading Catholics away from Christ and the Church and into a modern, liberal, progressive rejection of many Catholic teachings.

The list of writers on the NCR staff are a who’s who of people who reject and attack Church teachings.

On December 3, 2012 the NCR printed an editorial rejecting Church teaching on the Priesthood.

See NCR Online


In one of the most brazen acts of dishonesty ever printed the NCR claimed President Obama is more pro-life than Mitt Romney.


Other examples of the National Catholic Reporter’s dissenting positions, editorials, and articles are to long to list.

Please consider sending a short note to Bishop Finn in Kansas City (Diocese where the NCR is located) and ask Bishop Finn stop allowing the NCR to use the name Catholic because they are deliberately confusing the Catholic faithful, distorting Catholic teaching, and leading people away from Jesus Christ.  Go Here: http://www.diocese-kcsj.org/contact/

NOTE:  Please be careful, the National Catholic Reporter (NCR) is the heretical newspaper.  The National Catholic Register (NCR) is the Orthodox newspaper that reflects the teachings of Holy Mother Church.

  1. Aren’t we suppose to be having a new evangalazation? How can we when we allow this kind of attacks on the Church and priesthood to go on and the Bishop is silent?

  2. This paper has been attacking the Catholic faith for a long time and trying to remake the Church into an arm of the democrat party.

  4. Why is NCR allowed to be called Catholic is a good question. Forty Four (44) years ago they were asked to remove “Catholic” from their masthead. NCR was established in 1964 with the blessing of Bishop Helmsing. Only four years later, on October 16, 1968 the same Bishop Charles H. Helmsing of Kansas City, MO, wrote:

    “In fairness to our Catholic people, I hereby issue an official condemnation of the National Catholic Reporter. Furthermore, I send this communication to my brother bishops, and make known to the priests, religious and laity of the nation my views on the poisonous character of this publication.”

    In the document the Bishop clearly defines their heresies, asks them to drop “Catholic” from the masthead, and implored them “for the love of God and their fellow men, to change their misguided and evil policy; for it is evident to me that they have already caused untold harm to the faith and morals not only of our laity, but of too many of our priests and religious.”

    Bishop Helmsing’s full document is here:
    Ed: Thank you for this info

  5. This rag has long been known as The National Catholic DISTORTER. It is a scandal that it is still around not to mention the fact that it is against the Church, the Truth and the Life.
    On the other hand, it is good for one thing: if you use it to line your birdcage then you won’t have to use another copy of The Freeport Urinal Standard or The Rockford Pravda Star and risk killing your bird with the horrible reporting they have in it. Use the Distorter for this duty and you will actually put it back where it came from – on a big pile of crap.

  6. If the bishop in Detroit went after Michael Voris for criticizing some clergy then why is the NCR allowed to continue to call itself Catholic. It’s pretty obvious it isn’t Roman Catholic???
