Everybody’s favorite right-wing Catholic attack dog is continuing his dogged pursuit of fake Catholic groups, or as he puts it, “Catholyc astroturf groups”. I would like to draw your attention not to the target of his ire, but the argument he makes. He refer to a statement by bishop Broglio as follows:
“In his Monday statement, Archbishop Broglio explained that according to canon law a group may call itself Catholic if it has been approved by a bishop or recognized by the Holy See in some manner. “It is doubtful that the group in question has such approval. Therefore, it cannot be legitimately recognized as Catholic,” he commented.
