Catholics Responded to a Joke Account Asking When They Felt Unwelcome in Church

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is a real organization made up of real Catholic leaders. Its Twitter handle is @USCCB.

The Twitter handle @USCCBP — with one extra letter that stands for “Parody” — typically riffs on the Church’s problems. Last month, for example, it tweeted, “What’s it like being a woman in the Church? LOL literally no one here knows.”

But on Wednesday, that parody account asked a simple question that some people seem to have taken all too seriously. The answers were more informative that anyone could have guessed.

Even if the question was asked as a joke, the responses should be taken seriously by actual Church leaders. The Catholic hierarchy is doing more to push people away from the faith than the rest of us are doing to pull them in our direction.
