Today in religious freedom: MN Catholic church denies confirmation to 17-year-old equality backer

by Jeremy Hooper

A Minnesota teenager Facebooked about civil equality. His church did not hit the "like" button:

Such a duality at play. The church showed support for cultural advancement when it used the newfangled technology known as Facebook to learn of this young man's political opinions. But then they cast him out for simply supporting future's inevitability? Such conflicting nonsense.

No word on how this church is next planning to use the internet to keep its flock properly anti-LGBT. Though I do hear anyone who puts an Adam Lambert album on his or her Amazon holiday wish list will be forced into emergency confession.
