CCI NOTES: In the last 4 months, CCI has been actively involved with the Catholic Media Coalition, in raising awareness of Terri Schiavo’s impending execution by dehydration and starvation. During that time, CMC and CCI received virtually no support from the Florida bishops and in fact have learned that Bishop Robert Lynch of the St. Petersburg Diocese ordered his priests to stay away from Terri. Joni Durling is also a member of the CMC, and she responds to Bishop Lynch’s lame press release regarding the denial of Communion to Terri as she was being slowly killed, nor does it speak to Bishop Lynch’s disinterest and ignorance of Church teachings on euthanasia. Bishop Lynch, to whom all American bishops have defered in this crisis, has behaved in a disgraceful manner, and continues to do so.
