A Sunday Afternoon Thought . . .

The New PersecutionRussell Shaw:

“The persecution of the Catholic Church and other morally conservative religious bodies has begun in the United States. …

“This new persecution currently has two prongs.

“One consists of pressuring individual religious believers to cooperate with public policies inimical to faith. …

“As for the second prong of persecution — pressure to adapt religious programs and institutions to the promotion of hostile values, coupled with vitriolic denunciations of whoever says no to doing that — it has been visibly in operation lately in San Francisco, where Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone came under attack for saying that teachers in Catholic schools shouldn’t teach things contrary to Catholic morality.”
