Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on efforts by New York Senator Chuck Schumer to help Catholic inmates in Brooklyn:
Catholic inmates do not lose their constitutional right to religious liberty, and this certainly includes being ministered to by a priest. Yet that right has been vacated for too long in Brooklyn: the Metropolitan Detention Center has not had a Roman Catholic chaplain in its employ for most of the year. With Christmas upon us, this is unconscionable.
New York Senator Chuck Schumer is contesting this long-standing vacancy, and he needs the support of all Catholics. He has registered a complaint with the federal Bureau of Prisons. You can do so as well.
Kudos to Senator Schumer.
