Occasionally I'll read something like this in the newspaper, and sit in disbelief. Comment by Ill. Rep. Monique Davis (D-Chicago). How this was not covered more widely really surprises me, as a frequent reader of the news.
An update by Eric Zorn, the original blogger on the Trib's site. Zorn called attention to what happened in the original post above, and with this article asks why nobody takes notice.
I guess I wonder the same thing. I'm not advocating one religion or another on this blog, but how about the right in the United States to self-determine what religion we would like to follow? Why is there not more backlash against this IL Rep?
