In the spirit of bipartisanship

Here's an interesting proposal by the Connecticut legislature:
After a priest stole $1.4 million from a church in Darien, state legislators have proposed a law that would regulate how parishes are controlled and operated.

The state's Catholic bishops rallied opposition from the pulpits at weekend Masses.

The law essentially would strip the dioceses of all financial control of parishes and leave bishops and priests to oversee "matters pertaining exclusively to religious tenets and practices." A board of elected laypersons would handle parish finances.

Instead of just automatically opposing this Democrat maneouvre, I've decided in the spirit of bipartisanship to meet it halfway: How about you try it out on the Episcopal Church first, and see how it goes?

I was alerted to this yesterday by Laura Ingraham (whom I recommend highly, and you can listen to her here: Laura is an RC convert and that as she says entitles her to act as if she ran the Church herself. I was going to blog about this but backed off after reading the bill, as it seems that the bill would come into effect only in parishes where the priest approved, which the bishop could presumably prevent.

But one thing the story doesn't mention needless to say is that the co-sponsors in the House and Senate are both homosexual activists.

Hands up everybody who's surprised to hear this!
