Please do not have any food or drink in your mouth as you read this NCR dribble, for you may wind up spitting it all over your monitor and keyboard as you laugh out loud.
Tom Gallagher of course celebrates the abolition of the death penalty in Maryland. However, he takes the Maryland Catholic Conference to task for "not mustering up a simple thank you to the leadership of O'Malley.." He then draws a parallel of this imagined slight of O'Malley to the ingratitude of the nine lepers healed by Jesus. I'm not kidding! He just compared aborto-phile and homo-phile Martin O'Malley to Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
One must wonder why Gallagher sees fit to engage in such unabashed boot-licking for O'Malley. Yes the latter is posturing for the White House. Is the former posturing for some cushy administrative position? If not, why the mindless pandering?
By the way - "NCR" means "Not-At-All Catholic Reporter".
