Scranton Diocese Warns Against False Prophets

The Diocese of Scranton today joined a growing number of Catholics raising alarms about two phony Catholic organizations working hard to elect stridently pro-abortion candidates in this election.

The Catholic Key Blog has previously reported on these groups here and here. Please watch this important video from the Diocese of Scranton. It addresses many of the concerns The Catholic Key has received from Catholics in swing-states, Ohio and Pennsylvania mostly, who are being bombarded with false Catholic teaching from these pro-abort funded partisan front groups.



Below is a partial transcript:

"In this election cycle we have heard much about Catholic teaching . . .

Some individuals and groups are arriving at their own interpretations regarding the demands of Catholic Social Teaching. Catholics United and Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good are two such groups.

You may have received a postcard from them recently. They call themselves non-partisan and claim to be concerned about Catholic teaching and the common good.

But that is not the case.

Catholics United and Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good are telling you that a Catholic may vote for a candidate who supports abortion . . . They claim that support for their possition is found in . . . Faithful Citizenship.

By trading on the name 'Catholic,' these groups give the impression that their reading of the bishops' statement is authentic Church teaching. It is not.

Catholics United and Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good are neither united nor allied with authentic Catholic teaching. Catholics and non-Catholics alike should not be misled by them. . ."
