Editor's Note: I had written this a while back but for some reason never published it. So, I thought I should publish it, even it is late. Mea Culpa.
The Maryland Catholic Conference (MCC) has conducted a survey of the congressional candidates who are currently on the primary ballot. Now there is nothing wrong with this, but once again, would you guys (that means the MCC) stop with some of your radical left ideas.
With Question 3 you are asking these candidates to put the safety and security of the US in danger. You are probably the same people who said 9/11 was our fault.
In Question #4 you use the term “undocumented” and not “illegal aliens.” These are people who have entered the US illegally. No matter how you try to sugar coat it, they have broken the law. I guess we should call pedophile priests, “members of the clergy who love children in an adult way.” Let’s see you use that phrase the next time.
Question #6 calls for socialized medicine. Have you taken a look at Britain’s hospital system? It is a mess. We need to go back to the days before HMOs. Oh, and if you did not know it, Ted Kennedy was one of the primary sponsors of the legislation that brought us HMOs.
I still do not believe that the MCC adequately represents the views of the average Roman Catholic in the Archdiocese of Washington.
It is time for the Archbishop to fire Richard Dowling and the rest of the crew at the MCC.
