Train's Letter to The Bishop of Lincoln, et al

In your "Letter to the Faithful" regarding the Obama Administration's abortion, contraception, and sterilization diktats, you made the following statement:

" the martyrs of old, we must be prepared to accept suffering which could include heavy fines and imprisonment..."

DARE YOU decree the role of "martyr" upon the faithful who will suffer because of the Bishop's collective failure to heed their warnings when the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" was being discussed publicly prior to being voted on?

DARE YOU take the mantle of "martyr" upon yourselves, who failed to recognize the obvious threat to liberty -- religious and otherwise -- that such a draconian body of legislation presents --a threat so obvious that even laypeople recognized it, and communicated their concerns to you?

DARE YOU absolve yourselves from your complete failure to warn the lay faithful when one of the most anti-life presidential candidates in history was using carnival side-show tactics to seduce voters, many of whom are your parishioners, into supporting him in the election?

DARE YOU absolve yourselves from your failure to have read at Mass your concerns about his pro-abortion position, or any of his other questionable attributes, which the media failed to scrutinize, or to have read at Mass your concerns about "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act"?

DARE YOU ignore the overt solicitations -- even at Mass -- by Obama supporters of other communicants, which, again, you failed to speak out on?

IF WE ARE MARTYRS, is our blood on your hands?

The use of dramatic high prose style is offset by the mundane message. Yes, obviously the Bishops dropped the ball, but does that negate their call to action now. Would you rather they maintained silence? Blood on hands....a bit over the top Train.
