London: In its latest newsletter being sent out in the season of Advent to all Catholic parishes and schools– Verum In Factum – the Catholic Action Group (C.A.G) are openly challenging and criticising the doctrinal error of the UK Catholic bishops for releasing and endorsing a book called the “Gift of Scripture”, which last month caused controversy. Scandalous newspaper headlines about its release alleged a sea-change on the Catholic position on the inerrancy of scripture, which C.A.G boldly and publicly asserts has never officially changed.
C.A.G is concerned that their own UK Hierarchy is quite happy to water down the faith in some sort of misguided sense of pushing for unity at the cost of the absolute truth of the faith. Many recent actions, affirm this view, such as when the UK Bishops failed to publicly rein-in its own charity group CAFOD when they openly dissented and condoned condom use last October 2004.
Robert Williams –C.A.G’s Secretary commented – “We have pleaded with the UK bishops to correct this error, but to no avail. We now routinely send our concerns to Rome, who by now must know of this very “silent schism” from official teaching. All faithful Catholics know that no Catholic bishop has the authority to issue any document which goes contrary to what the Church officially teaches.”
John Gunn – C.A.G’s National Coordinator stated – “Whilst many western Catholics genuinely remain ignorant of their faith through an objective failure of the western Hierarchy to feed them the full truth, this latest offering crosses the ambiguity line that many liberals hide behind and openly smacks of modernism, a heresy condemned by the Church especially very openly by Pope St Pius X, as recent as 1907. Church teaching on the inerrancy of the bible has never officially changed. Our bishops, bless them all, are accountable, as we are, to God and must be charitably hindered when they endorse public errors, which they will not put right. These facts any well read lay Catholic person can easily understand as error.”
C.A.G - is an independent Catholic organisation. It has been established to defend Catholic Truth nationally in the United Kingdom through action both inside and outside of the Church. Membership is open to all mainstream orthodox Catholics who are fully obedient to the teaching Magisterium with the Pope at its head and ALL Bishops obedient to the Pope.

Most recently it has campaigned against Joint Religious Education schools, issued a UK Voters Guide for Catholics and has also supported and promoted Catholic boycotts of CAFOD (Catholic Agency for Overseas Development) for its controversial Hiv/Aids - ABC (Abstain, Be Faithful, Use a Condom) policy and also Comic Relief for its funding of Pro-Abortion organisations.
