Tom Tancredo thinks Catholics are a bunch of damn commies

Soot-black and stupid hungover from his latest cross burning, Tom Tancredo looks for another group to slur (via CSIndy):
Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.) who helped draft the House bill, has said the Catholic Church's immigrant rights campaign is run by "left-leaning religious activists" who want "blanket amnesty" for the undocumented.

Although a lapsed Catholic m'self (I was 6-years old when I decided the whole religion thing was sillier than Davey & Goliath), one thing I've admired about the Church is its dedication to social justice. Sadly, the Church's voice in matters of social justice has been drowned out by the idiocy of anti-choice and anti-gay marriage babblers of late but it's heartening to see Catholic bishops taking a stance on an issue that adheres closest to the words and deeds proscibed in the Gospels.

I really hope Bill Winter pushes Tancredo on this. A lot of bingo money gets pushed to the candidate who doesn't imply that Catholics are a bunch of commies.
