Progress and Equal Treatment

I've been reading 'Parting the Waters.' It really gets my blood boiling when I read about how those opposed to the civil rights movement manipulated the criminal justice system for political purposes. I'm glad we don't do that anymore.

Oh, wait, maybe we do.

Our local Catholic newspaper had a special message from the bishop this week: "You can not be pro-choice and Catholic."

O.K., whatever, but how about in response to allegations that the City of Hoover and a Catholic county Judge decided to create their own immigration departmentl: "You can't be a racist, corrupt p-o-s and be a Catholic."
