Very shortly, at 2:00 p.m. PST, California Democrats will honor one of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Michael Williams (who goes by “Sister Roma”). The invitation was extended by Senate President pro Tempore Toni G. Atkins. Williams is one of a larger group of queers and trans persons being honored on the floor of the Capitol in Sacramento.
Throughout much of the last century, the Democrats were the Catholic-friendly Party. That changed in the 1970s, and in recent years it has become increasingly inhospitable to Catholics. Now it is openly anti-Catholic. This event proves it.
Faithful Catholics are holding an ecumenical prayer vigil on the west steps of the Capitol.
The only difference between these California Democrats and the Ku Klux Klan is that the latter promotes violence. But non-violent bigotry is not only intolerable, it abets its violent manifestations.
