Atheists Sue Catholic Bishop In Brooklyn

The NYC Atheists and a group of clergy sex abuse survivors filed simultaneous lawsuits in Brooklyn Supreme Court yesterday, reports the Brooklyn Eagle.

They claim that Bishop Nicholas Di Marzio and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn endorsed political candidates, which is a illegal for a church.

The atheists and the victims of clergy sexual abuse say that Di Marzio recorded robocalls praising Lopez (and those candidates he backed) -- to reward Lopez for opposing a bill that would have tangled up the church in more sexual abuse lawsuits.

Our favorite comment by Lopez: “It’s a group that doesn’t believe in Christmas ornaments or trees.”

Hey. Tough talk.
