Pope warns U.S. bishops of "radical secularism"

CNS photo/L'Osservatore Romano Pope Benedict XVI poses for a photo with U.S. bishops on their "ad limina" visits to the Vatican Jan. 26. From left are: Bishop Ronald P. Herzog of Alexandria, La., Auxiliary Bishop Shelton J. Fabre of New Orleans, Bishop Glen J. Provost of Lake Charles , La., Archbishop Gregory M.

Muench of Baton Rouge, La., and Bi shop Michael Jarrell of Lafayette, La.
Obama's tyrannical medical mandate was among the dire issues discussed between U.S. bishops and the Pope as they met in Rome. Francis X. Rocca's CNS article explains their concerns:

Religious freedom and environmental disaster were on the agenda in late January for U.S. Catholic bishops from five southern states making their periodic "ad limina" visits to Rome.

In meetings with Pope Benedict XVI and Vatican officials, bishops from Region V -- which includes parts of Alabama, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee -- discussed a wide range of pastoral matters, both local and national.
