Amarillo Gets National Press

UPDATE: It looks like these folks are using the corpse of Terry Sciavo to raise $$ and get established politically. "In recent months, Pavone has been focused on marshaling religious conservatives around Terri Schiavo, the brain-damaged Florida woman whose feeding tube was removed March 18. " Says it all right there. . .

Ya know, if Catholics want to get into politics that's fine by me, TAX 'EM'! Why should I have to pay taxes to the government while these guys sock away every dime tax free and then want to get involved in voter drives etc. using public resources. If I have to pay then so should they and so should everbody who wants to be involved in the political process.

If not, then stick to preaching.
