Suppose you're one of the 25 active diocesan priests of the Diocese of Las Vegas. Ordained in 1962, you're pastor of St. Andrew's Catholic Community in Boulder City. You're a member of the diocesan presbyteral council and the priests' personnel board. You have $500 in your pocket and are inspired to give it away. To whom, or what, do you direct your alms?
(a) to a corporal or spiritual work of mercy
(b) to a pro-life candidate
An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

I hope those who find this disgraceful on the part of a priest are contacting the Fr. and respectfully pointing out the inconsistency of a Catholic priest giving material support to a candidate who is at serious odds with the constant teaching of the Church over non-negotiable matters. I certainly am.

Solution: buy Annese a halter with "Judas" printed on it ! "He who is not with Me is against Me: he who does not gather with me scatters !"

Sounds like he's covering his bets--both politically and spiritually.
