NYTimes Praises RC Opposition to AL Immigration Law

It is not every day that the New York Times editorial page quotes a Roman Catholic bishop approvingly. But, in an editorial this morning, the Times quotes Mobile Archbishop Thomas Rodi in backing his opposition to a new draconian anti-immigration law in Alabama. The archbishop has joined with other religious leaders in a lawsuit to block the law. Rodi said, "The law attacks our core understanding of what it means to be a church." And, so it does.
Let's hope that someone in the next GOP presidential candidate debates asks the candidates their position on the new law.
