SNAP's anti-Catholicism is showing...

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Jun 14, 2012

Out of compassion for young people who were sexually abused, maybe you were initially sympathetic toward SNAP. As the weeks and months and years wore on, and SNAP continued to churn out denunciations of the Church, maybe your sympathy was tested. Eventually you began to wonder whether SNAP was no longer working for reform within the Catholic Church (if that had ever been the group’s goal), but consistently working against the Church—whether it had become just another anti-Catholic group.

Wonder no more. The featured speaker at SNAP’s annual conference in July will be Barry Lynn, the executive director of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State. If you’re not already familiar with Lynn’s work, suffice it to say that the organization he heads was originally named Protestants and Other Americans United for Separation of Church and State. I hope I don’t have to spell out which particular Church those “Protestants and others” opposed.

Hat-tip to The Media Report.
