Regarding Ned Barnett’s Sept. 29 column “Catholics bow out from a rare bond”: The fact is, the N.C. Council of Churches bowed out of the bond with Catholics. As with many organizations, charities and unions, the NCCC has become political to feed at the government trough. Barnett also misinterprets Pope Francis’ comments as a change of doctrine, similar to the changes in NCCC. Our pope’s comments are strictly to remind us we are all sinful children of God who must love everyone equally and not judge anyone.
