When is discrimination a beautiful thing?

Why, when it's aimed at the Catholic Church, of course. Even as a Protestant minister, I used to joke that I thanked God daily for the Catholic Church. After all, who else was it so acceptable to hate in today's society? The last acceptable prejudiced: Christianity in general, and the Catholic Church in particular.

Dr. Paul Kengor, over at Catholic Exchange, demonstrates more of the 'intolerance is a beautiful thing' meme beginning to sweep our country. This time, as is so often the case, it's a brand spanking new Supreme Court Justice. Again, I know there are those who are bigots, who want to discriminate, marginalize people, and punish non-conformists in every group. But those who appear to have the Catholic Church in the cross-hairs are not so much living in the caves of Afghanistan as they are teaching at Harvard, or now, sitting on the Supreme Court.
