During an all-encompassing conversation with Terry Barber of Virgin Most Powerful Radio, Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas lamented the fact that the media and elected officials in the United States are “liars” that don’t care about telling the truth.
“There’s a lot of negativity in our world, and our nation is battered by a press and politicians that are liars,” he said. “They lie and they have an agenda that could care less about the truth.”

Strickland made the comments after he and Barber were talking about the rising level of fear being stoked in the United States. Strickland said people should “fear God” and not fear death, a likely reference to coronavirus propaganda being pushed with the so-called “Delta” variant.

Strickland called on Catholics to pray for their bishops, and to realize that even though there is “corruption in the church” taking place, there’s many members of the clergy fighting to prevent the compromising that’s going on in the Church.

His Excellency also re-iterated his opposition to the unworthy reception of the Holy Eucharist at Mass.

“Whether it’s a politician or a prelate in the church, or the father of a family or the head of a billion dollar business, whoever it is, we all before God are sinners who need to ask forgiveness. And if we refuse to do that, we shouldn’t go to communion,” he said.
