taking a stand

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jan 26, 2004

"It's simply not acceptable."

That's a public statement by a Catholic official in response to a policy proposal made by a nominally Catholic governor. Is the outrage ...

a) legalization of gay marriage?
b) state funding of third-term abortions?
c) mandatory domestic partner benefits for state contractors?
d) a 20% reduction in the social services budget?

It isn't even a close call, is it?

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Rick Mockler, executive director of Catholic Charities of California. "The governor and the legislature have to be more sensitive to people at the greatest risk. And that's straight out of Scripture and our faith tradition." For some strange reason, Mockler forgot to give the references from scripture and the Church fathers on the Government's responsibility to perform the Corporal Works of Mercy. Hmmm, must have slipped his mind.

    So, is the diocese going to advise this guv not to "dare" approach for Communion for this terrible crime?
