On recent anti-RC backlash in Conn. and NY
The bill imposed upon Catholics (and only Catholics!) the organizational structure proper to the faith that was in Colonial times the state religion of Connecticut, Congregationalism.
That bill has been withdrawn.
Make bishops non-voting figureheads who can’t administer their churches, and you haven’t just crippled the Church; you’ve gutted it.

The Catholic Church has plummeted from the heights of respectability it attained in the 1950s as part of the Cold War coalition to the status of a second-rate, vaguely disreputable cult.
Protestant nativism never went away — it only changed from Calvinism to PCness — but Taki’s John Zmirak explains some of this was self-inflicted.
