Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on a news release issued earlier today:
This morning we disseminated a news release, in the form of an open letter, that I wrote about a Long Island lawmaker who proposed a resolution that would stifle the religious speech of those who offer a prayer before a meeting of the Suffolk County legislature. We also listed the email contact for the chairman of the Ways and Means Committee. They took the matter up today.
I am delighted to report that the chairman, Robert Trotta, contacted our office before noon saying the resolution has been tabled. My guess is that it will never see the light of day again.
Many thanks to all of you who made your voice known. Your input was decisive.
