“Expanded gaming in the Commonwealth opens the door to a new form of predatory gaming. We are concerned that the Commonwealth will be forced to rely on an unstable form of revenue, depending largely on those addicted to gambling. They are the citizens who are already among the ranks of the poorest in the community – the ones who can least afford to gamble.”
“We urge the citizens of Massachusetts to vote ‘Yes’ on Ballot Question 3 and stop the expansion of predatory gambling.”
Those sage and impactful words came in a statement from the Catholic Bishops of Massachusetts yesterday, led by Cardinal Sean O’Malley, Archbishop of Boston and the Bishops of Worcester, Springfield and Fall River. Further demonstrating the growing support for casino repeal, they join elected officials like Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Congressman Stephen Lynch, grassroots activists, concerned parents, and others.
