USCCB honours pro-homosexual rabbi.
Unfortunately for the USCCB, their leaders were unaware that Rabbi Brickner was also a long-time crusader for abortion rights and homosexual rights; he was a founding member of NARAL (National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League).
Brickner maintained that the human fetus was not a child and did not have a living soul. He also helped to draft the American Religious Declaration on Sexual Morality, Justice and Healing which upholds contraception, abortion and homosexual "rights", including the "right" to the blessing of same-sex unions, cradle-to-grave sex instruction and population control.
In response to the USCCB press release, Randy Engel, Executive Director of the U.S. Coalition for Life stated that the U.S. bishops had to refute the release, fire those responsible for issuing the statement, issue an apology to the pro-life community and ensure that Dr. Fisher be removed from any advisory position to the Holy See. (He is currently a consultant to the Vatican's Commission for religious Relations with the Jews.)
