Leonard also claims "members of religions, other than the Roman Catholic religion, have been afforded access to the chapel to engage in religious exercise in conformity with their respective faiths."
The notice from chapel staff says, "Protestant services will continue to be held in the Subase chapel Sundays @ 1030. We apologize for the inconvenience" [more].Frankly, this is simply outrageous. The headline should have read: "Catholic services forbidden, Protestant services allowed". To those who deny my claims that there is an coming persecution of Catholics in the United States of America, how do you explain this? It cannot be simply an oversight. Why this important piece of information comes at the bottom of the article and not at the top is beyond my understanding.
Because the free exercise of Father Leonard's religious liberty has clearly been violated, he has filed a law suit with the assistance of the Thomas More Law Society.
In his affidavit, Father Leonard provides what might be termed a "money quote":
In China, I was disallowed from performing public religious services due to the lack of religious freedom in China. I never imagined that when I returned home to the United States, that I would be forbidden from practicing my religious beliefs as I am called to do, and would be forbidden from helping and serving my faith community.
