Further Evidence That the USCCB is Worse Than Useless

From Church Militant:


WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com) – Some liberal Catholics and an associate professor of religious and Africana studies have criticized the director of public affairs for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) for her conservative-leaning activity on Twitter.

The Washington Post published an article on Thursday titled “The spokeswoman for America’s Catholic bishops stirs criticism among Catholics with her pro-Trump tweets.”

Judy Keane, author and director of public affairs for the USCCB, has liked or responded to some conservative-leaning tweets on her personal Twitter account.

The author of The Washington Post article covers three people who have taken issue with Keane’s Twitter activity in which she expressed support for President Trump and opposition to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.).

“The @USCCB communications director @JKeanePR liked a tweeted article saying @AOC deserved a ‘Nobel Prize in Stupidity.’ This is a series of juvenile & unchristian social media conduct from the Catholic bishop’s top spokesperson,” said Christopher Hale in a reply tweet.

Hale is a contributor to Time and a Democrat contributor to Fox News. He has worked as a Catholic non-profit executive and helped lead faith outreach for former President Barack Obama.

Some of his contributions to Time include “Trump-Pence is the Most Anti-Catholic Republican Ticket in Modern History,” “Why Heaven Can Have a Gate But the U.S. Shouldn’t Have a Wall” and “Donald Trump’s Anti-Christian Campaign.”

In an article Hale wrote for Time when the U.S. Supreme Court made same-sex marriage the law of the land in 2015, he wrote:

There’s nothing more important in my life than being Catholic and a part of the universal Church of Jesus Christ. For me, it’s not just membership in a fraternal organization or civic group, but in a family that gives me my identity, my roots, and my wings. I take my faith’s teaching on every issue — including gay marriage — seriously, but I, too, can’t help but feel joy for my LGBT friends who celebrated Friday’s decision. 

Anthea Butler took issue with one of Keane’s tweets regarding the success of the economy under President Trump.

“Lowest unemployment rate EVER, incredibly robust economy under Pres. Trump – is that also fictional? Facts are stubborn things beyond a typo,” tweeted Keane. 

Butler responded, “If the @USCCB don’t at least reprimand @JkeanePr for her tweet, then I have to wonder what message they are hoping to send out with someone who is supposed to be working for their office instead of the President.”


Go here to read the rest.  Witchhunter Christopher Hale is a Soros funded fake Catholic.  Go here and here to read about him.  The USCCB has reacted like Pavlov’s Dog to his yelling Conservative Heretic! 

Keane is on leave from her work for the USCCB this week, although the nature of Keane’s leave is unclear.

“The Conference is nonpartisan and does not endorse political candidates, said James Rogers, chief communications officer for the USCCB. “We take this very seriously.”

Your collection dollars at work.  This has bupkis to do with Catholicism and everything with Leftists hijacking the Church for their agendas.


More to explorer


  1. I’ve seen Butler on Bloggingheads. As far as I can tell, she’s a vulgar sectary. In the last 25 years, she’s completed a dissertation and written one book. Her scholarly publications otherwise consist of book reviews, a chapter in a reference book, and a couple of discussion pieces. That’s what gets you tenure at a non-descript teaching institution, not a research institution with cachet. She’s a mascot. We live in clown world.

    It’s reasonable to require of someone employed as a flak that they limit their published opinion to work-related issue, pseudonymous commentary, and social media commentary be in protected mode. We all know that if the complaint came from the other direction, she’d have to be doing something absolutely egregious for anyone she reports to to take notice. (I’m recalling around about 2004 a Catholic laywoman in the Bay Area contacted the public relations staff of the Archdiocese to notify them that a particular priest had participated in a gruesome ‘gay pride’ parade. The immediate response of the chancery microbe she contacted was not only unaccommodating, it was snotty and rude; as a rule, being gratuitously snotty and rude to a member of the public should be a firing offense for a PR officer, but, again, we live in clown world).

  2. Rate My Professor never attracted much attention from students and the frequency of postings has been declining over the last 10 years. I’ve often suspected that most of the postings are from faculty members and family of faculty members trying to buff their reputations, because what’s on their violates the rule of life that people are more motivated to complain than praise. (Andrew Greeley once admitted that the body of letters he and his publishers received about his non-fiction worked contained twelve letters of complaint for every compliment).

    That having been said, on only one other occasion have I seen such awful reviews. She must be horrid.

  3. The only language the Hierarchy speaks is money. So if we want to have an impact we need to a) have rigorously and unapologetically orthodox institutions to support; b) make sure that the USCCB knows where our money is going and why it’s going there.

  4. I’d be curious to know if the people and organizations calling
    for Judy Keane’s head on a stick are similarly upset over
    Ralph McCloud’s career at the USCCB. As many readers here
    will recall, McCloud has for over ten years run the Catholic
    Campaign for Human Development, during which time the
    CCHD has created scandal by being repeatedly busted
    channelling donation dollars to various pro-abortion and
    pro-gay marriage groups. And, of course, while McCloud
    was heading the CCHD he was also campaign treasurer for
    Texas politician Wendy Davis, a.k.a. “Abortion Barbie”, the
    Texas representative who campaigned for governor on her
    militantly pro-abortion record. The USCCB certainly never
    reprimanded McCloud for his actions.

    I suspect the folks calling for Keane’s head aren’t upset that
    she has expressed political views as much as they’re livid
    that her views aren’t “correct”…

  5. Good point Clinton.

    For those taking Foxfier’s advice and planning on contacting the USCCB, be sure to point out to them that if Keane has to go, there’s no way McCloud can stay.

    Unless, that is, they’re planning on changing the name of the organization to the United States Conference of Liberal Catholic Bishops.

  6. I think George Orwell said, “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”

    Seven little words told me all I needed to know: “assistant professor of religious and africana studies.” The pro-abortion, pro-sodomy USCCB, this twit, and thousands of other misfits suffer from Trump Tourette Syndrome.

  7. Keane ought to have contrasted Trumps numbers and Obama’s numbers. Perhaps all presidents’ numbers
    Issues and principles are fair game to judge. People are out in the Catholic Church.
    Abortion is a principle. Pelosi is a people

  8. Witchhunter Christopher Hale is a Soros funded fake Catholic.

    Heh and Hale of Soros is fake indeed; the Church had no such office as Witchfinder. That’s a novel invention of Protestants. Hunting witches and burning, hanging, and pressing people accused of being witches is a Protestant thing.

  9. Oooh, trivia time!

    In fact, “witches” are not a Protestant thing– they’re a pretty much everybody except for Catholics thing.
    The areas that became Catholic and then had witch hunts again anyways? Were following old traditions.

    If you see pictures of a little kid in Africa sitting on the street, starving? He’s usually been declared a witch. That’s the idea behind witch-doctors, you see…they fix what a witch did to you. 🙁

  10. Hunting witches and burning, hanging, and pressing people accused of being witches is a Protestant thing.

    More of a German thing, though it happened in other places. Not sure of the distribution between Catholic and Protestant areas in Germany. Rare but not unknown in Spain and the Papal States, arguably because these areas had regular procedures to address accusations of this nature. IIRC, pretty much unknown in Orthodox countries.
