For an example of how this works in practice, the Paper illustrates:
Assemblyman Joe Lentol (D—Williamsburg) told us the $50 check he sent for a student at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel’s parish school on Withers Street in Williamsburg was returned — along with a copy of the bishop’s statement.
“I’m disappointed,” said Lentol, a Catholic who voted for the bill, and often attends services at the church. “They’ve always accepted my checks.”
Mt. Carmel’s pastor, Joseph Calise, said he was following orders from DiMarzio.
“It couldn’t be done in Joe’s name,” Calise said of the annual award from Lentol. Calise added that a parishioner provided a matching award.
The ban is intended to punish politicians, but so far it just looks like it's kids who are punished. How typically Catholic!
