It's Begun
The first steps to jail our priests
Helmet tip to Matthew

Remember no too long ago I posted about the day that they would be coming for our priests? That day has dawned.

Australia's Cardinal Pell is to be interrogated by a parliamentary committee. What happened was that Cardinal Pell warned Catholic lawmakers that they would face religious consequences if they supported a bill allowing therapeutic cloning.

The Greens Party (tree hugging, rainbow flag waiving, baby butchering Communists) won approval to have the cardinal interrogated by a parliamentary committee for contempt. Under the Crimes Act, contempt of Parliament is a highly serious offense punishable by up to 25 years in jail.

There's no doubt in my mind that this will die in committee. But don't think for a moment that The Greens or their friends have quit trying. This is just starting.

These aren't the first steps. This is certainly part of the growing trend, though.

These are the same people who just banned alcohol for some of their population based on national origin and the color of their skin.
I wonder what's gonna happen if a priest gives an Aborigine communion under both kinds - it'd be the "perfect" storm of discriminatory injustice.
