Old-timey Anti-Catholicism graces front page of Washington Post’s “Express”


The Washington Post produces a daily tabloid called “Express.” The paper is distributed free, mostly to commuters at Metro stops. It gives one something to read on the train ride downtown.

Here’s what greeted DC commuters–a paid advertisement from Catholics for Anti-Catholicism Choice–on the second day of the Fortnight for Freedom:

Today is the feast of Sts. Thomas More and John Fisher. Maybe we can all send them a little request to intercede for our nation and our leaders. And I’m sure the folks at the Washington Post (who ok’d this travesty) and at Catholics for Choice could do with some prayers as well.
