We need to revisit the definition if our Bishops don't even get it.

Scandal, the Catechism teaches us (2284) is "an attitude or behavior which leads another to do evil." If you acknowledge the existence of evil, it's a very small step to realize that one person can lead another into evil. That's scandal. And if you recognize that abortion is evil, you can connect the dots. Or, if you prefer, consult the Catechism again (2286): "Therefore, they are guilty of scandal who establish laws or social structures leading to the decline of morals..."

Seen any of those laws lately?
