Numerous anti-Catholic slurs in bankruptcy lawyer’s memo
Catholic World News - December 02, 2011
Referring to a bankruptcy judge and other court employees as “dirty Catholics,” a Minnesota attorney said in a bankruptcy filing that “across the country the court systems and particularly the Bankruptcy Court in Minnesota are composed of a bunch of ignoramus, bigoted Catholic beasts that carry the sword of the church.”
“Catholic deeds throughout the history have been bloody and murderous,” added the memorandum, which was signed by bankruptcy attorney Rebekah Nutt, who said that the views were those of her client, a company that ran gas stations and convenience stores. Nutt added that she did not write the words that bear her signature.

This is a hilarious story. I have a wretched cold, and it made me feel good. Sign me 'dirty'

Attorneys are often made by their clients to say things that they would not necessarily say. That's the reason their monniker is "mouthpiece." I've been on the business end of that kind of harrangue and hope it reduces my time in purgatory. It ought to.

I don't get it. If she didn't write it, just who did?
