Bishop Daniel E. Thomas on the Issues

Viganò testimony

Supports investigating Archbishop Viganò’s claims
  • Bishop Thomas said he stands “united” with Cardinal DiNardo’s call for “the Holy See to conduct a prompt and thorough examination, including granting authority to a lay commission.” It “is not only a critical, but a moral obligation, to get to the truth surrounding who in the Church knew of Archbishop McCarrick’s behavior and whether there was a concerted effort to protect him.” (Diocese of Toledo)

Abortion politics

Not enough evidence collected on this issue
  • Politicians who publicly support abortion and euthanasia do not “share fully and practically in the faith of Christ,” Bishop Thomas told a pro-life conference in March 2018. “Any person who embraces an ideology or political stance which does not by law protect the most innocent among us, including the unborn, then they’ve renounced the very heart Catholic Social Teaching,” he said. (LifeSiteNews)
  • Bishop Thomas blasted an Ohio healthcare organization for partnering with an abortion facility in March 2018. In an article that appeared on the National Catholic Register, Thomas argued that the decision “defies logic” because a hospital is supposed to save life whereas an abortion clinic’s sole reason for existence is “the direct killing and dismemberment of innocent human life.” Thomas also took issue with an editorial that appeared in the Toledo Blade newspaper, calling out the article’s defense of the hospital’s decision “illogical.” (National Catholic Register)

Contraception

Not enough evidence collected on this issue
  • In March 2018, Bishop Thomas told a pro-life conference sponsored by Cleveland Right to Life that one need only read Humanae Vitae to understand the damage the birth control pill has had on society. America’s “full embrace” of the sexual revolution has led us to abandon the real definition of marriage and gender identity, His Excellency told the conference. (LifeSiteNews)
