Catholic bulletins as electioneering aids: MN Edition

by Jeremy Hooper

The Minnesota For Marriage campaign is, hands down, the most nakedly Catholic ballot push I've seen in any of the states where equality has gone to referendum. It's a truth we've all seen from the chief group behind the push, the Minnesota Catholic Conference. But it's also a truth I'm starting to see more and more in Catholic church bulletins across the state.

For example, here's one from the January 8 service of St. Paul's Holy Trinity, in which the pastor encourages congregants to use this new year to stop those darn "militant homosexuals." Oh, and for backing, the pastor uses the uber-incendiary LifeSiteNews. Enjoy:

**MORE: The same church ran another LifeSite-backed column this week, wherein progressive Catholics are written off as not Catholic.
