Can we trade bishops?

Finally, bishops with guts: Brazilian bishops, who originally supported leftist President Lula da Silva, have publicly criticized him for first dealing with international debt obligations instead to attending to the immediate needs of Brazil's millions of desperately poor.

Whether right about Lula or not, I'm just glad there a group of Catholic bishops that are making the social gospel a priority, since ours seem completely content to remain silent, even as, need I remind you, a Congress with plenty of Catholics and even more other Christians funded the Pentagon to the tune of $450 billion while cutting spending on the poor by $40 billion.

And still, not a peep.
