lobbying: religiously

“if you’re gonna be a priest then be a priest.  be moral.  be spiritual.  don’t try to be a priest and a lobbyist tho, that sort of thing never ends well.”

Comments as the above follow this Pennlive column:

The Catholic Church’s pressure campaign on sex-abuse bill has crossed the line: John L. Micek”

From the column:

“Take, for example, Rep. Nick Miccarelli, a Delaware County Republican, who was called out by name in the parish bulletin for St. Rose of Lima church in Eddystone, Pa.

“‘JUST SO YOU AWARE’,” the update tucked among the routine church notices read, ‘State Rep. Nick Miccarelli’ voted in favor of House Bill 1947 which states that private institutions can be sued as far as 40 years ago for millions of dollars, while public institutions may not be sued for any crimes committed in the past.”
