MD's "Bathroom Bill" - Where, Oh Where, Is The Maryland Catholic Conference On This?I've been getting email alerts from MD-Petitions, Help Save Maryland and others (politicians and individuals) who are tracking the process of Maryland's SB212/HB1265. It has been dubbed the "bathroom bill" and is a statewide version of the bill that passed the Montgomery County Council several years ago. I'm a woman and I believe this is an affront to my safety, which is being sacrificed on the altar of political correctness. I'm glad that all these folks are alert and speaking out. However, one organization's silence is deafening - an organization that ostensibly exists to promote the Catholic voice in legislative venues, particularly in Annapolis. Which is that?? Why, it's...
The Maryland Catholic Conference
Look at their webpage. Why isn't the Bathroom Bill smack-dab in the middle of their main page?? We see all sorts of advocacy for progressive positions such as minimum wage, "immigration reform", ya-da-ya-da. I find their silence on the Bathroom Bill to be rather deafening. Could it be that they just don't care? Might it be that their silence is coerced or bought? Why - oh why - hear we not one peep regarding this moral disaster that's about to be thrust on us?
And the Maryland Catholic Conference wonders why faithful Catholics don't take them seriously!
