This is certainly OT for this group; but when you see a message as
thoughtful and well done as this entire message was, you're willing to
forgive the error.

This priest is a real jerk. And the really serious problem is, is he
just stating the moral views he believes his parishoners and fellow
Catholics should follow for themselves; is he urging his
parishoners to vote for laws and legislators that will use the power
of the State to forcibly impose their religious views on the rest of
us, who do not share his views, in the management of our own lives?

His statements are very frightening.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: There was a very interesting program
today at our local synagogue. A professor of theology from the
university at Lawrence, Kansas was invited to come and preach; his
sermon topic was 'Liberal Jews and Terri Schiavo'; afterward, at the
coffee hour, he and the rabbi entertained a question and answer
session. Most interesting, most revealing. The times are really
changing in these United States, to be sure.

Oh, and remember, this is 'spring ahead' night on our clocks. Move
your clocks _up one hour_ sometime tonight or tomorrow! PAT]
