Statement of Protestant Leaders against Anti-Catholic Bigotry

As Protestant Christians and as Americans, we condemn the grotesque anti-Catholic bigotry that is now on display as a result of the Supreme Court's recent decision upholding the constitutionality of the federal law prohibiting partial-birth abortion.

We denounce as particularly odious a cartoon published by the Philadelphia Inquirer depicting the five justices who formed the majority in the case wearing Catholic bishops' mitres...

We believe it is our particular duty to condemn the bigotry we are now witnessing in view of the history of anti-Catholicism in our nation. It is a stain on the Protestant Christian conscience...
Some of our separated brethren have been blessed with eyes to see and ears to hear. We must pray and offer our reparations and sacrifices for our own sins and for those of others whose hearts and minds are closed to the graces of our Lord.
