Bill Donohue, of the Catholic League for Civil Rights, has offered an apologia for the meltdown in Philadelphia, complete with the requisite fear-mongering about Muslims. This is not, as Donohue suggests, about the constitutionally protected rights of the clergy. The situation in Philadelphia is about the Cardinal-Archbishop's willingness ot ignore the Dallas norms adopted by the US Bishops in 2002.
I almost feel sorry for Donohue this is so lame.
