Connecticut Attempts to Suppress the Church

I'm sure most of you have heard about this by now, but a couple of radically stupid congress-folk from Connecticut declared war on the Church this week.

Senator Andrew McDonald and Rep. Michael Lawlor introduced a bill that would require that parishes to adopt a lay board of administrators to govern certain aspects of the parish. Here's Archbishop Mansell's letter about it. At least the sponsors here weren't trying to hide their intentions. The bill targeted the Catholic Church and only the Catholic Church. The Enemy has become quite bold.

Luckily, there were enough outraged Catholics in Connecticut to swamp the legislative phonelines and have this piece of hell-spawned trash withdrawn from consideration. This article is pretty informative.

Just so McDonald and Lawlor know, I hereby name them for what they are- Forerunners of the AntiChrist. And dumb ones at that. I don't think even Ginsburg could come up with sufficiently busted logic that could get this to pass Constitutional muster.

Get used to it folks. This is probably only the beginning.
