Anti-Catholicism, as Philip Jenkins (a non-Catholic) has pointed out, is the last acceptable prejudice. It is a growing trend in our culture and one that is gaining ground quickly, especially in our government leaders.
Yet, our response is what is even more important. Yes, we need to fight against prejudice, but with love and kindness, not anger and hate. Even when we oppose unjust laws, such as the HHS Mandate, which need all people of good will to be actively and strongly opposed to them - we should always have love as our motivation.
