Catholic League: stamping out that pesky truth

... so you don't have to! The New York Times reports that the Catholic League is demanding that John Edwards dismiss two bloggers working on his campaign "for expressing anti-Catholic opinions."

In a statement released Tuesday, the president of the Catholic League said, â??John Edwards is a decent man who has had his campaign tarnished by two anti-Catholic vulgar trash-talking bigots.â?�

The trash talk in question? Amanda Marcotte wrote on her blog that the church's ban on contraception forced Catholic women "to bear more tithing Catholics."

I'm sorry, but ... which part of that isn't true, exactly? The Catholic Church is the most successful industry in the history of the world because, with a business plan like that, you just can't lose.
