Write In Between

CT Bishops and Churches need your help!

Those who are able, should come to the Connecticut State House in Hartford to witness the public hearing that will take place tomorrow at noon, regarding proposed bill 1098, a bill to restructure parish financial organizations.

I've written about it here.

You can read more about it from the Diocese of Bridgeport's website here. There are email addresses and phone numbers to take action and to voice your concern on that site. Please do so! It's okay if you don't live in CT. Let the CT Legislature know that America is watching, and what is being suggestion is a trampling on the First Amendment and religious liberty in America.

For a historical look at similar fights in US Catholic history, read Carl Anderson's (Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus) article here.

Here in Massachusetts, we are praying about what will happen in Connecticut tomorrow... this may be the latest tactic used in silencing the Church's voice in the public square... not just in Connecticut, but elsewhere. Stay tuned.
Update, 1:15pm EST: The hearing has been postponed. But CT Catholics are still urged to storm Hartford for a rally according to the Diocese of Bridgeport website:
The public hearing for Proposed Bill 1098 may have been postponed, but the Bill is STILL ALIVE. Our Rally in Hartford is STILL ON for Wednesday, March 11, at 10:30 a.m. For details, go here.
