almsgiving XII

By Diogenes (articles ) | Aug 14, 2004

Suppose the local archbishop has appointed you president of the archdiocese's Catholic Charities / Catholic Youth Organization, which has a $35,000,000 budget. You have $25,000 in your pocket and are inspired to give it away. To whom, or what, do you direct your alms?

(a) to the Missionaries of Charity

(b) to another corporal or spiritual work of mercy

(c) to John Kerry's presidential campaign

If you're Clinton Reilly, president of Catholic Charities / Catholic Youth Organization of the Archdiocese of San Francisco -- a man described here as "a Roman Catholic who supports gay rights and a woman's right to choose"-- your answer is (c).

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
