Connecticut Legislature Moves To Regulate Catholic Church In Suspected "Payback" For Marriage Stance
For now, the measure has been tabled, but that doesn't mean it's gone.
As Anita points out, this legislation is the brainchild of one Tom Gallagher, who proposed this in a "Voice of the Faithful" newsletter. The "Voice of the Faithful" couldn't be more misnamed; it's a group of opportunistic dissident Catholics who use the clergy sex scandals as their platform to wrest the Church from that pesky Magisterium. Read this bunch of claptrap justifying their position as "adult members of the People of God."
Mr. Gallagher and company: If you want a democracy, leave the Catholic Church! But if you want to violate the First Amendment, you can't be much for democracy either.
