Connecticut bill on Catholic Church nearly identical to Voice of the Faithful strategy

.- Catholics around the country are upset over a new bill in the Connecticut Senate that, in the words of the Archbishop of Hartford, “forces a radical reorganization of the legal, financial, and administrative structure of our parishes.” The bill, which bears resemblance to Voice of the Faithful’s Strategic Plan, is being supported by Dr. Paul Lakeland, who believes that in this case it’s appropriate to use state legislation to force the Church’s hand.

Dr. Paul Lakeland, Fairfield University Chair of Catholic Studies, Voice of the Faithful member, former Jesuit Priest, and author of several books including “The Liberation of the Laity: In Search of an Accountable Church,” recently discussed his support for Connecticut’s controversial Bill No. 1098 with CNA. Dr. Lakeland is also scheduled to testify before the Connecticut General Assembly on behalf of the bill.

Whatever happened to separation of Church and State? This is an outrage. When it comes up again, we need to fight it with every ounce of energy we have!

(Thanks Tiff for spreading the word on this outrage)
