I wasn't talking about statements from the USCCB. I was talking about direct preaching from the pulpit. I was also talking about a Document written by the former president of the USCCB, now the abshp of my diocese, who publicly wrote a document encouraging Catholics to NOT vote for a personhood measure that was up for a vote in our state 2 weeks ago. Thankfully, it passed anyway, despite his best efforts. If you think those at the helm of the USCCB and their ilk, like Dolan,are fearlessly shepherding the Catholic faithful, you are misinformed. Misinformation filters down to the faithful, and that is exactly what has happened in this case.
