"News" piece on the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights' (CLRCR) annual 60-page journal, which was recently released. Each year, the journal lists every reported incident of anti-Catholicism that takes place around the country. According to the New York-based group, there were two offensive acts committed against the church in Maine last year. One occurred in an Orono elementary school, where a young girl was told to turn her sweatshirt bearing the words "Jesus Christ" inside out. The other was a decision by the Portland Housing Authority that declared no religious symbols could be displayed in public areas in their 17-story subsidized housing high-rise. Patrick Scully, a CLRCR spokesperson, said Maine and its 234,000 Catholics do not face much hostility.
