Heres a story from my dear state of Conn.It seems Sen.Andrew McDonald of Stanford and Rep.Micheal Lawlor from East Haven have introduced a bill (S.B. 1098)
Seems they feel that some of the Conn.Catholic Churches are questionably corrupt so to keep these churches on the straight and narrow they have decided it would be a good idea to appoint lay people from each church to be over seers of these financial situations and both priest and bishops would not be allowed any imput.
Does this sound like a good idea? It's an embarrassment to have to say this to these guys but its illegal.It is against the constitution of the counry.We have a separation of church and state.You can not dictate how the Catholic churches can run their financial,administrative and legal structure.
This is not only constitutional wrong but it goes against the churches apolistic structure. Tomorrow march 11th,there will be a meeting in Hartford at 12noon room 2c, in the legislative building,The archdiocese of Hartford is asking every parish of the Harford diocese be represented by 6 to 10 parishioners.Glen Beck said today that there may be a march on Hartford tomorrow A.M.
If you would like to email this so called sen. and rep. here are their emails...
