In Minnesota, they try to be more covert about their anti-Catholicism, but now, all three branches of government, including the fourth estate, feel emboldened to attack the Catholic Church. It's not a hyperbole to say that they share a certain commonality with another government of the Twentieth Century.
It shouldn't be necessary to remind people that many Communists in German and Austria joined the Nazi party. There just isn't that much difference, but they shared other common pursuits and interests as well, including hatred for the Catholic Church and the manipulation of moral panic for political purposes.

SAN FRANCISCO, October 26, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has shakily allowed to stand a resolution by the city government of San Francisco that lambasted the Vatican as "meddl[ing]" and "insult[ing]" for reaffirming its teaching against homosexual adoption, and which urged Church officials to disobey the Magisterium.
The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in 2006 had issued a statement clarifying that Catholic Church agencies, in line with the Church's moral teaching on sexuality, should not hand over children to homosexual couples seeking to adopt. The statement was prompted by Catholic Charities branches in Boston and San Francisco choosing to cooperate with homosexual couples seeking adoption.
As a result, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors later that year issued a nonbinding resolution that personally attacked Cardinal William Levada, the head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and former archbishop of San Francisco, and his directive as "discriminatory and defamatory."
