"This is a highly cynical act, contemptuous of the Church's prophetic voice in civil society and wagering that there will be no retribution. If a midwestern school seeks attention by granting Mr. Obama an honorary doctorate in law, the next logical step would be to grant Judas Iscariot posthumously an honorary doctorate in business administration."

Frank Trotta from the Our Greenwich blog writes of the new assisted suicide bill brought to you by the same folks who wanted to take control of the Dioceses of Hartford, Bridgeport and Norwich. "The dust was just settling after the skirmish this week between the Catholic church and Senator Andrew McDonald, a prime mover of a bill to regulate the governance of the Catholic church in Connecticut. Now, the Catholic Bishops are ringing a second alarm bell to the faithful, asking them to oppose a bill coming before McDonald’s Judiciary Committee permitting assisted suicide in Connecticut. The legislation, which according to one source comes from McDonald, is labeled the “An Act Concerning Death with Dignity” and is raised bill 1138. Were the bill to become law, Connecticut would be one of the few states to permit (in Connecticut’ case require) doctors to prescribe drugs to assist patients in killing themselves. Oregon has an assisted suicide law and the state of Washington passed a referendum in November allowing it."

Repent and be saved.... Yet one can't help but hope that Bishop Martino's second open letter to Sen. Casey signals that an excommunication is on the way, given that Casey persists in "cooperating with evil". Perhaps just the thing to get others to repent and believe.
