Re: “Arkansas bishop announces dismissal of priest

After I read the statement released by Barbara Dorris, Outreach Director for SNAP, I realized that the Tea Partiers had invaded the Catholic religion. Dorris, had she been a man, would have been a well-respected witch hunter. She has managed to try and convict Monsignor Thomas (yes, his title is Monsignor--one not easily come by) without a shred of evidence that he EVER committed vile acts against children. Ms. Dorris is like the fear mongerers of Washington who hide behind their loud mouths and intolerence for the truth because truth hampers their agenda. Without one fact to base it on, SNAP has publically labeled Msgr. Thomas a pedophile (if they think it's true, it must be true). This deeply offends me in more ways that I can say here, but more than that, it scares me. Hatred and predjudice in the name of God? Terrorists for the good of our children? Slanderers and libelists--our warners and protectors? No thanks. The scars you leave on people are much deeper than the ones you imagine. As a Catholic, I choose compassion and intelligent discourse; as a "Christian," you cross the line by thinking you are God. Are you listening Bishop Taylor?
