This is absolutely outrageous. As a Vietnam veteran, I can only be angry and frustrated at the cynical use of government power. And, while I am not Catholic, to deprive Catholics of their fundamental exercise of their religion by volunteers is absolutely outrageous.
US Sen. Leahy and Rep. Peter Welch, both VT Democrats, and both who approve of the government tactics, are graduates of Catholic institutions, (st. Michael's College, and holy cross, respectively). Shameless.
