Colorado Archbishop Aquila West Stepping against SB14-175

After Pope Francis has urged Catholics to extend the loving hand of forgiveness, and to not judge others for their sins, his new Archbishop in Denver takes to the West Steps of the Colorado State Capitol this afternoon (Tue, April 15) to lobby, no, to West Step his opposition to pending legislation.

This should be an interesting afternoon. It's hard to believe that Archbishop would be acting without some official encouragement from the Church hierarchy.

It could be Pope Francis sees the danger of appearing to take the position of just rolling over in legislation that undermines freedom of religion.

No confirmation anywhere with local Denver media that Archbishop is still on. It would be great to see Archbishop go into the Capitol and buttonhole Catholic legislators. He certainly has a right to do so in our free (at least for now) society.
