Ahead Of Schedule

Last week I highlighted the Orwellian language by which the DC City Council was essentially shutting down the Catholic church within its borders in the name of religious liberty.

Today, with this extraordinary headline --Catholic Church gives DC ultimatum-- WaPo makes it seem as if the big, bad Church is threatening the poor city council by having the nerve to point out the obvious and intended effect of the legislation.

In the original post I wrote that once the city had successfully shut down all Church charities, it would attack the Church for not operating charities. Cue WaPo:
The Catholic Archdiocese of Washington said Wednesday that it will be unable to continue the social service programs it runs for the District if the city doesn't change a proposed same-sex marriage law, a threat that could affect tens of thousands of people the church helps with adoption, homelessness and health care.
Man, they're good! The law hasn't even passed yet!
