This article by Jamie Stiehm at USNews is a stunning piece of bigotry. She admits that she does not know what motivated Justice Sonia Sotomayor to issue a preliminary injunction on behalf of the Little Sisters of the Poor, and then spends the rest of the piece warning against the dark intrigues of Romish religion. It is stunning that the editors would publish such a thing. Ms. Stiehm should start an anti-popery riot. She should burn Pope Francis in effigy. Go all out on Guy Fawkes Day. But, her editors should not publish her paranoid, delusional, and venomous screed. Shame.
