WELCOME TO THE USSA!

BRIDGEPORT, Connecticut (Catholic League) - Bill #1098 has been introduced in the Connecticut legislature by Rep. Michael Lawlor and Sen. Andrew McDonald that orders the Catholic Church to reorganize.

Its express purpose is “To revise the corporate governance provisions applicable to the Roman Catholic Church and provide for the investigation of the misappropriation of funds by religious corporations.” It specifies that each parish is to elect a board of directors to run all parish functions, thus stripping the Pastor of his authority.

Catholic League president Bill Donohue responded as follows:

“The Catholic League has been deluged with phone calls, e-mails and faxes from Catholics, as well as non-Catholics, from all over Connecticut. On March 11, there will be a public hearing on this bill. Bridgeport Bishop William Lori and Hartford Bishop Henry Mansell are imploring Catholics to attend. More than that needs to be done.

“Bishop Lori is correct to say that the bill ‘is a thinly-veiled attempt to silence the Catholic Church on the important issues of the day, such as same-sex marriage.’ Indeed, it is payback: this brutal act of revenge by Lawlor and McDonald, two champions of gay marriage, is designed to muzzle the voice of the Catholic Church.

“By singling out the Catholic Church—no other religion has been targeted—Lawlor and McDonald have demonstrated that they are ethically unfit to continue as lawmakers. They have evinced a bias so strong, and so malicious, that it compromises their ability to serve the public good. They should therefore be expelled by their colleagues.

"Reprimand and censure suggest that the offender can be rehabilitated. It is painfully obvious in this instance that neither lawmaker is prepared to accept such a sanction. Expulsion is the only rational response. We are contacting House leader Christopher Donovan and Senate leader Martin Looney to explore this action.”

give a rat a cookie, he's going to want a glass of milk. these jack asses cried for sepperation of church and state, and they got it, now they want state to control church when it should be the other way around, just as sure as i thought that is what George Washington and all the others founded this county by in the first place

We're not going to just shoot the sons-of-bitches, we're going to rip out their living guts and use them to grease the treads of our tanks. Gen. George S. Patton

A Catholic church founded by the apostles. In "Catholic Christendom" (including the Anglican Communion), bishops are considered the highest order of ministers within the Christians.

man...they feel that now is the time they can push their entire agenda, without much push back from the right...the economy is allowing them to promise the world! And people are falling for it.

I am concerned about liberal groups going after the church for public speach. Many organizations are trying to close down churches calling the mass a hate speech. The goal is to sue the church for damages and remove tax exemptness.
So our constitutional rights are once again being removed.
The church may have its faults but serves the community.
This is another communist pillar that removes god from the people in order to insert government as god.
We are so fucked..............

God I hope you're right Raffy, I am not a religious person but I believe in the rights of any person who wishes to practice one.
