A wildly outrageous anti-Catholic bill which was due to go to a hearing tomorrow in Connecticut, has been tabled, but word is that the issue is not going away.
The Judiciary Committee of the Connecticut State Legislature, crafted a bill that specifically names only the Catholic Church, and forces it to form lay committees to govern parishes. These lay committees would be "elected from among the lay members of the congregation at an annual meeting." Under the legislation, the bishop and priests would have had no vote at all. This is a blatant attempt to derail the Church's consistent opposition to many things currently happening in today's society.
Due to the outcry against the legislation on grounds of religious freedom, separation of church and state, and constitutionality, the bill has been pulled, but the planned rally in Hartford, CT will still occur on Wednesday.
Keep watch over our rights to freedom of religion in this country. They are being slowly (and in some cases, rather quickly) eroded away.
