Here's an editorial from a Connecticut paper regarding the recent failed attempt to bring the Catholic Church to heel. This was referenced from a post in Catholic Culture. I post this as proof of the animosity of some supposedly normal folks toward the Church. The thinking evidenced in this article shows that antiCatholicism and the rationale against it is now a VERY acceptable form of bigotry. As usual, my comments are in red.

It's no surprise that the bill to change how Catholic churches' finances are governed outraged many among the faithful. At least it shouldn't have been, including to the state legislators who introduced it.
about the church finances? Answer: because those two rabid gays feel empowered by the radical leftist in the White House and with Pelosi & Reid, and felt now is the time to push the envelope." (Strong language, but not an unlikely scenario IMHO.)
