A group of East Boston religious leaders today launched a campaign against the proposed resort casino at Suffolk Downs. As their Web site says:
Because we believe God has something better for East Boston than a casino.
More specifically, the clergy members say the casino would leader to more crime, addiction, traffic, pollution and bankruptcy and higher insurance rates.
East Boston residents vote in a referendum on Nov. 5 whether to accept the proposed $1-billion casino.
