Urge bishops to take action against association Print
Letters to the editor

To the editor:

Since the Catholic Health Association has openly defied the authority of the U.S. Catholic bishops by supporting the Senate health care bill, the Catholic Health Association is violating 323 (1 and 2) of the Code of Canon Law.

The U.S. Catholic bishops have the authority to take action against the Catholic Health Association based on Canon 314 of the Code of Canon Law.

Charles and Magdalene Sippel, Waterloo
