So They Can Use the Courts, Too

I'll be interested in seeing how this turns out.

Comparing the Board of Supervisors to the Ku Klux Klan, a Catholic group and two city residents filed a lawsuit Tuesday claiming Catholics’ constitutional rights were violated when the board passed a strongly worded resolution condemning a church official for prohibiting Catholic Charities adoptions by same-sex couples in the Bay Area.

The Catholic League for Civil Rights and Justice and city residents Dr. Richard Sonnenshein and Valerie Meehan are seeking a judgment permanently prohibiting the Board of Supervisors from “attacking” religion as well as damages for the plaintiffs, said Richard Thompson, the head of the Thomas More Law Center, which filed the lawsuit on behalf of the plaintiffs.

I'll post the actual resolution once it becomes available.
