Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the response of the Utah House Speaker to yesterday’s news release:
Yesterday, we asked those who receive our emails to contact the Utah Speaker of the House, Rep. Brad Wilson. We need his help in opposing a bill by his Democrat colleague, Rep. Angela Romero, who would gut the confidentiality of the Confessional seal. Here is how he responded:
“I have serious concerns about this bill and the effects it could have on religious leaders as well as their ability to counsel members of their congregation. I do not support this bill in its current form and—unless significant changes are made to ensure the protection of religious liberties—I will be voting against this bill.” (His emphasis.)
Many thanks to all of you who answered our call. Once again, your input has made a difference. We need everyone to get involved—that’s how we can change the culture.
