Since we posted, “Protect Bishop Jenky as he is under attack for defending Catholicism” on April 19th, Barry Lynn of Americans United for Separation of Church and State (AUSCS) has filed a complaint against Bishop Jenky with the IRS. Also, 49 members of the Notre Dame faculty have drawn up a petition (Click here) asking for the resignation of Bishop Jenky from the University’s Board of Fellows if he is unwilling to apologize. He is getting hit by enemies outside and inside the walls.
Some of our clergy friends of other denominations who follow “Lay Catholics” have experience with Barry Lynn of AUSCS and the IRS and could be very supportive of Bishop Jenky on the matter of pulpit freedom (Click here.)
As for the 49 Notre Dame faculty. They are deliberately bearing false witness against Bishop Jenky by trying to insinuate that the bishop said Obama is genocidal like Hitler and Stalin. I think there are a few ND alums who follow us that can call in their support for the bishop to the ND president and the ND board of trustees as well as their rejection of the 49 faculty member’s demands.
O Holy Spirit, strengthen us to defend all that is holy.
