    are having a harder and harder time keeping the circus going.

      The Catholics will also have to decide between using resources to promote comprehensive immigration reform or preventing teh gays from getting married.

      As pissed as most of us are at the Catholic Church, they are progressive on immigration issues and they know who is going to be filling the collection plate in the future - Latino immigrants who have legal status and better jobs.  It's both an economic decision for future revenue and a moral decision as the Catholic Church genuinely supports the dignity of immigrants.

      So are they going to be spending money on anti-gay marriage lawsuits, or on lobbying for immigration reform? They don't have unlimited funds.  They know where their growth areas are - Latino immigrants and not elderly white haters.  They are going to prioritize immigration.  This issue is huge, really huge, bigger than most of us realize.  And it is absolutely central to the US Catholic Church.

      It's better for their souls to be in favor of something than against something.  It feels better.
