A math teacher who
threatened two Connecticut lawmakers for introducing a bill
that would mandate fiscal oversight for churches has been
allowed to keep his job.
Timothy Kane, a
26-year-old math teacher, was ordered to undergo a mental
evaluation and anger management training. He is expected to
return to court in May, according to
Kane sent an e-mail on
March 10 to Rep. Mike Lawlor and Sen. Andrew McDonald
concerning the bill.
"You better hope
myself and other Catholics don't find out where you
live," Kane wrote, according to police, "cause
there's hell to pay for your attack on the church. F---
off. God hates gay sex."
The proposed law, which
has since been withdrawn, would have changed how Catholic
churches managed their finances and administrative dealings.
Bridgeport bishop William E. Lori called on local parishioners
to contact their representatives over the bill. Eventually,
thousands of Catholics demonstrated against the proposal.
