Mass. Secretary of State Bill Galvin continues his one-man crusade against the Archdiocese of Boston. Having already announced that he would file legislation regarding parochial school closings and comparing parish closings to abusing kids all over again, he’s now filing more legislation, this time to require the archdiocese to report to the state details of large financial transactions. He even admits that it could be considered a breach of separation of church and state, but that doesn’t seem to bother him.
What’s interesting is that all this flurry of activity from Galvin comes after his parish was announced for closure. It leaves me to wonder if he’d be just as outraged if his parish wasn’t on the list last Tuesday.
