Check the Fidelity (or lack thereof) for Your Bishop

A very timely website has come out through the leadership of LifeSiteNews.  The following is from an August 31st article by the organization:
LifeSiteNews launched a new website today dedicated to providing U.S. Catholics with evidence of whether their bishop is faithful or unfaithful to perennial Church teaching.
Faithful Shepherds helps hold American bishops accountable by providing years, sometimes decades, of past tweets, public speeches, sermons, actions, pastoral letters, and diocesan guidelines. 
Faithful Shepherds currently gives evidence of where U.S. bishops stand on ten issues: Archbishop Vigano's testimony, Amoris Laetitia, pro-life leadership, homosexuality, abortion politics, contraception, “LGBT” ideology, liturgy, marriage and family life, and education. More will be added as new evidence is gathered. 
For each of the nine issues, bishops are given one of four rankings: 
1. Faithful to Church teaching
2. Not faithful to Church teaching
3. Unclear whether they are faithful to Church teaching
4. Not enough evidence has been collected for this bishop on this issue 
LifeSiteNews co-founder John-Henry Westen commented that Faithful Shepherds is “extremely important for the life of the Church in the 21st century.”
