  • Bishop Lucas co-authored a statement on behalf of the U.S. Bishops’ Conference that strongly rebuked an Obama administration pro-LGBT directive that would’ve allowed “transgender” students to use whatever bathroom they want. Lucas described the directive as “deeply disturbing” and contradictory to basic human formation. (LifeSiteNews)
  • Archbishop Lucas issued a joint statement with other Nebraska bishops condemning “gender ideology” in schools. Calling gender ideology “harmful” and “deceptive,” Lucas urged the Nebraska School Activities Association to pass the “sex on birth certificate” bylaw amendment. This amendment would require students to participate in activities according to their sex at birth. (LifeSiteNews)

  • In a column in the April 17 issue of the Catholic Times in 2009, Bishop Lucas said Notre Dame’s honoring of President Obama sows confusion about Church teaching on life. “For some this may be one political issue among many,” the bishop wrote, but for Catholics its about proclaiming the truth. “We are not being unreasonable when we expect the value of human life to be a central focus of a Catholic university.” (LifeSiteNews)
