“Some things change, and some things don’t.

“Some things change, and some things don’t. The bias against “papism” is alive and well in America. It just has a different address. But at least some people in Alabama now know where the local Catholic church is — and where she stands — even if some people in Washington apparently don’t.” (CCI Editor’s Note: There was a time when popes and bishops had no hesitation toward excommunicating a heretical king or prince who demonstrated a determination to lead souls to hell. Now-a-days, you can find these princes at the front row at Mass, like Kerry and Kennedy at Bishop O’Malley’s installation Thursday. Some things change, indeed.)
