    I'm less concerned about one newbie state legislator than I am about a so-called Catholic President-elect who has chosen an anti-Catholic bigot as his VP, and who is being lauded and applauded by so-called Catholic prelates even as he vows to bankrupt the Little Sisters of the Poor, make abortions available nationwide through the ninth month of pregnancy, eliminate conscience protections for medical personnel who refuse to perform them, & require faithful Catholics to pay for them.
