The Catholic League issued a news release today that reads, in part:
“Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's duplicity in handling the 9/11 memorial ceremonies scheduled for Sunday:
Last week, Mayor Bloomberg signed into law [click here] the ‘Workplace Religious Freedom Act,’ a bill designed to award new rights to Sikhs and Muslims. But when it comes to showing sensitivity to Catholics, the mayor shows nothing but contempt."
Read the entire release and send the mayor a message to dump his 9/11 gag rule.

I must admit I'm disappointed in Archbishop Timothy Dolan's take on the matter. Dolan met with Bloomberg about a month ago.
"I think other people were involved in the planning not just him,” Dolan said in an interview with the cable news outlet NY1. “He was very honest and up front. I think it’s very limited. It may not be the way I want it, but it’s just going to be immediate family and the political people who were in office then and political people now. I’m fine with that.”
This is more like it:
“Nobody was turning religious leaders away from the scene 10 years ago. Why are they being banned from the 10th anniversary?” said the Rev. Richard Land, who leads the public policy arm of the Southern Baptist Convention, the nation’s largest Protestant group. “The only answer pure and simple is anti-religious prejudice.”
