Archdiocese Of New York: Help! We're Being Oppressed! By Gov. Cuomo!

The Catholic Archdiocese of New York is piling on Gov. Cuomo, who earned the ire of hate groups by declaring that opposition to civil rights is "anti-American." From their blog:
I have been warning for some time about the intolerance that we are likely to face from the forces of “tolerance” who backed the bill legalizing same-sex “marriage” here in New York. The other day, the impending persecution became even clearer, as Governor Cuomo, the highest public official of New York State, declared us to be enemies of the state and nation. [snip]

Those of us who have memories of American history are deeply angered and disturbed by such rhetoric. We recall a time when Catholics (and the Irish in particular) were deemed to be a threat to America, and were openly persecuted. We thought that we were past those days, but obviously they are returning.

And remember, the Governor’s thuggish remarks don’t just target the Catholic Church, but also the Orthodox Jewish community, the Evangelical Christian community, many mainline Protestant Churches and Muslims, and others of no religious faith who all believe in the authentic, traditional meaning of marriage.
The post closes: "This is legitimately frightening. We all know what the power of the state can do to its enemies." Oh, Mary. Rattle them beads a little faster, girl.
