As tomorrow’s big announcement in Boston looms closer, Voice of the Faithful has realized that the big news right now isn’t the Scandal, but parish closings. Thus, in order to remain relevant and visible in the media, they’ve jumped on the bandwagon. And as usual they’re the most asinine things about the situation.
For one thing, they want to stop the closing process and to do that they’re hinting the Archdiocese may be in violation of the law. Get this:
The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston was founded by an act of the Legislature in 1897, according to [John] Hynes, [chairman of the steering committee of Boston VOTF], and his organization is “looking into whether the archdiocese is in any kind of violation of that act.”
