"Just before noon, the lawmakers canceled Wednesday's public hearing on the controversial change to the state law on the way Roman Catholic churches are run."

It is interesting that they thought they had any right to do so, at least the way that sentence is worded. A Catholic with a suspicious mind might think this is a trial balloon and in that sense the continuation of the rally is a good thing, to emphasize the opposition.

Every state has a right, in accord with its own constitution, to determine how churches and religious and charitable organizations are recognized under state law and how they interact with the government, but they don't have the right to reach across and meddle in Church organization.

The fact that this bill could get as far as it did is more than a little troubling. I'll bet were gonna see more and more of this kind of thing.

I wanted to pass this information along since you have a wide audience and can warn people:
when I googled "Connecticut Bill 1098" I found several links listed that brought up anti-virus software warnings. They looked similar to my anti-viral program, but slightly off, so I closed them. I don't want to think about what I could have downloaded if I had clicked "OK" unknowingly.
