Left-Wing Priests’ Organization Slams Prayer Breakfast for Honoring AG William Barr


The Association of U.S. Catholic Priests (AUSCP) has blasted the “scandalous” decision to honor U.S. Attorney General William Barr at the annual National Catholic Prayer Breakfast.

“The recent decision of the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast (NCPB) to confer its Christifideles Laici award on Attorney General Barr at their September Breakfast is for us shocking, incomprehensible, and scandalous,” states the AUSCP, which supports Black Lives Matter and crusades against the “climate crisis.”

“Specifically, we consider Mr. Barr’s recent decisions and actions to be abhorrent in the context of Catholic faith,” the statement continues. “We consider especially scandalous his decision to begin again federal executions after 17 years of moratorium. Executions are clearly not pro-life.”

The mission of AUSCP involves “raising a prophetic voice” and undertaking “prophetic action,” according to the group’s website.
