"The problem with it is that elected officials have to represent people of all faiths and none and not adhere to one religious demand like the bishop's," he said.
Barry Lynn should keep quiet. There is no "debate" here, except in the minds of secular humanists. The Catholic Church has the right to enforce their laws. I am confident that God is not pleased with the pro-abortion stands of these politicians. This article makes it sound as if the Bishop has broken some Constitutional law.
The real battle in America in the 21st century is between secular humanists and Christians. This article gives a not-so-subtle hint about where the radical left wants to take this war - using force against churches that don't tow the PC line.

Exactly right. This has nothing to do with the Constitution. It only has to do with politicians wanting to have the rights and privileges of a private organization (the Catholic Church). This is between the church and them. It has nothing to do with the Constitution. Dems want to have the political cover of being called a Catholic, without abiding by any of its rules. The Church, and any private organization, must have the right to enforce their own rules. The people are free to leave this voluntary organization (or any other one) at any time.
