It is often said that the last acceptable prejudice is anti-Catholicism (though being anti-Christian and anti-male are certainly in the running) and proof of this is on display in Washington state.
In the state senate contest between Democrat Shari Song and Demcrat-turned-Republican Mark Miloscia to represent the Federal Way (a city between Seattle and Tacoma) constituency, Miloscia has been attacked for being a Catholic and, well, believing Catholic stuff. His opponent, when asked about it, said:
Miloscia is a social conservative, which definitely puts him out of the mainstream of political thought in coast Washington. However, he has not campaigned on his positions on social issues, those issues represent territories that have already been lost, destroyed, and plowed with salt in Washington. Miloscia is being attacked for being an observant Catholic.
This kind of attack is going to become more frequent.The slap-fight fascists at the Orwellian named Human Rights Campaign (because their actions demonstrate that they are only in favor of human rights so long as sodomy is involved) is gearing up a campaign directed at Catholic prelates who are vocal about adhering to Scripture and Tradition (both of which proscribe what the HRC is in favor of):
The LGBT group has announced an activist effort targeting eight bishops in a pamphlet that labels them as “the best of the worst Catholic bishops across the country.”
Its campaign will target Cardinal Francis George of Chicago, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, Archbishop John Nienstedt of St. Paul and Minneapolis, Archbishop Dennis Schnurr of Cincinnati, Archbishop Joseph Kurtz of Louisville, Ky., the president of the U.S. bishops’ conference, Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia, Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore and Bishop Thomas Paprocki of Springfield, Ill.
The effort aims to target bishops the activist group claims have been “most outspoken in their rejection of LGBT Catholics, their civil rights and their rightful place in the Church.” The effort will include Rosary events and literature distributions in the bishops’ home cities.
Attacks on Christians who adhere to Christian doctrine actually does us a favor. First off, it pull the mask off the ugly face of sexual deviance revealing it the monstrosity it is. Second, it give Christians everywhere a wake up call that you can’t cooperate with moral evil such as abortion and homosexual activity and expect the evil to not turn on you.
