The candidacy of former Bell County Judge Ben Leman for the House District 13 seat has brought out the claws between prominent Roman Catholic organizations in Texas.
The Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops (TCCB) took a wild swing at the work of Texas Right to Life (TRTL), the oldest and only legitimate statewide pro-life organization in Texas, in a Parish Advisory. Recently in his campaign, Leman has echoed the attacks in response to his opponent, Jill Wolfskill, being endorsed by TRTL.
TRTL wasn’t going to take the allegations of TCCB laying down. They composed a scathing rebuttal article entitled “The Bishops Lobbyist is Lying”. And, in a teleconference that led up to the special election on May 5, TRTL President, Jim Graham hammered at the Texas Catholic Bishops for differing with the Texas GOP platform on a number of issues: gun control, welfare reform, health insurance, the travel ban, refugee policy, Cuba policy, global warming, border security, deportation, and immigration, capital punishment, and more.
In recent years, TRTL has been much more aggressive and on the offensive in their approach. In the rebuttal article, they accuse the TCCB of not being in line with the directives issued by the Vatican.
