    Steve, excellent reporting. Especially your mention  that the show of force at the Statehouse hearing was not a reflection of the views of the majority of Black and Hispanic Rhode Islanders. You bring up a good point that when religious organizations start to act politically they should be held to a standard of transparency, and their tax exemption should not be abused or co-opted by political groups acting under cover of religion.
    Otherwise, I’m going to appoint myself High Priestess of Providence. April 15th is coming.

    The Catholic Church continues to fall deeper and deeper into a self induced irrelevant cocoon.  Some studies are suggesting MOST Catholics support marriage equality. One wonders if the divorce rate of same sexed married families will be lower than the more traditional kind, having had to wait for so long to gain equal rights.  Numerous studies already show that children in same sexed do as well as in so called traditional marriages, despite NOM’s assertions to the contrary.
