Congressman Peter King Vs. The Catholic Church

Peter King is actually a fellow parishioner of mine. I met him once at Dunkin Donuts and shook his hand. He is one of the very few politicians I like and respect. This time, King is wrong. Bashing the Church over pedophile priests because many of its leaders are opposed to harsh measures against illegal aliens? Then bring up nasty nuns from the 50's? I still like the guy, but he should stick to trying to find a solution to the very real problem of border security vs. our need for labor. My neighbor: if you can work with Bill Clinton to bring about peace in Ireland, surely you can work to make this nation secure and still open to all who sincerely want to work. Slapping the Church for whatever reason is bad politics, and is beneath you.
