Publication condemned for 44 years

U.S. National Reporter paper says it's 'proud' to identify as Catholic

Catholic News Agency tells of a response, by the editor of an American National Reporter newspaper told not to call itself Catholic, to a bishop's warning that the publication undermines the faith.

"NCR is proud to call itself a Catholic publication. We report and comment on Church matters, including official teachings," Thomas Fox wrote Jan. 27 on the paper's website. "We also report and comment on those who call into question some of these official teachings," he said.

In a Jan. 25 column for his diocesan paper, "The Catholic Key," Bishop Finn wrote that "in light of the number of recent expressions of concern, I have a responsibility as the local bishop to instruct the Faithful about the problematic nature of this media source which bears the name 'Catholic.'"
