Quote: "The New Lent swims in the waters of a vapid Catholicism which sees no difference in religions, miniaturizes doctrine, flattens the saintly pinnacles of perfection, and casts an embarrassing shrug at the erstwhile harsh disciplines of the Old Lent. For these belonged to a pre-1965 navel-gazing Church."

I just found a 2018 case out of Illinois where a court agreed that it was reasonable to pull someone over because the cop thought there was something unlawfully obstructing the driver’s view, which turned out to be a rosary hanging from the mirror. The case said that the rosary was not sufficient probable cause to search the vehicle, however. I would be surprised if any court would accept simply wearing rosaries as reasonable suspicion that a crime was committed. I suppose it could be different at a border crossing, but we don’t actually stop anyone from crossing the border these days.
