A note from CNA's Executive Director on the 'filial correction'
Denver, Colo., Sep 27, 2017 / 12:10 pm (CNA).- A statement from Alejandro Bermudez, executive director of Catholic News Agency and ACI Prensa:
I was surprised to see that my name has been added to the list of signatories on the so-called Correctio Filialis De Haeresibus Propagatis. I never signed this letter, nor do I intend to ever sign it. As a journalist, I was surprised at how easily the name of a person could be added to the list without any verification. Update 2:44 p.m.: Bermudez' name was removed from the list of signatories at his request. Source
Statement from little emperor Dr. Joseph Shaw:
“The organisers have become aware of attempts to cause embarrassment both to them and to certain Catholic figures by impersonating the latter to add their names to the petition. Although a very small number of names is affected, the organisers take this fraudulent activity very seriously and have taken steps to remove these names from the list and to prevent this happening again. Those responsible for this fraud should be aware of of moral and legal seriousness of their actions.” Source
