COUNTDOWN OF THE TOP 40 INTERVIEWS OF 2013 - #11 - American Church: The Remarkable Rise, Meteoric Fall, and Uncertain Future of Catholicism in America

  • Description: Has the Americanization of American Catholics-their cultural assimilation, that is-been a blessing or a curse for the Church in the United States? Or has it been a bit of both? Russell Shaw is here to take a searching look at that question and reaches a disturbing conclusion. Cultural assimilation, which was ardently championed by churchmen like the great Cardinal James Gibbons of Baltimore around the turn of the last century, has undoubtedly conferred many benefits on Catholics. Their absorption into the secular culture of America, however, now threatens the Catholic identity of millions of faithful and of their institutions, such as schools, universities, and hospitals. Is there a solution? Russell will answer that question.

COUNTDOWN OF THE TOP 40 INTERVIEWS OF 2013 - #10 - ACLU lawsuit aims at Church ethical directives on hospital policies

  • Description: The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has filed a lawsuit against the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), claiming that the ethical directives issued by the American bishops are responsible for negligence in the care of a woman treated in a Michigan Catholic hospital. Tamesha Means, who reportedly suffered damaging infections during a troubled pregnancy that ended in miscarriage, should have been advised to abort the child, the ACLU argues. The lawsuit claims that officials at Mercy Health Muskegon, a Catholic hospital, failed to provide the woman with the best medical options because of restrictions imposed on Catholic hospitals by the USCCB’s ethical directives. The ACLU case has important implications for the American health-care system overall, since 13% of the hospitals in the US operate under the auspices of the Catholic Church. We get analysis from Dr. John Haas of the National Catholic Bioethics Center.
