Hello? Hello?

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Aug 01, 2003

Especially here in Boston, it's been recently tough to find a newspaper story about the Catholic Church that doesn't quote from Voice of the Faithful. No matter what the story-- a new sex-abuse policy? an incoming bishop? a fundraising drive-- VOTF has been quick with a public reaction.

Until yesterday.

I wonder what VOTF thinks about the Vatican document on same-sex unions.

Is this one of those issues on which VOTF says Catholics can disagree-- even after the Vatican says they can't?

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    And in case there was any doubt about the Boston Globe being an anti-Catholic rag, in Saturday's edition they printed a letter from a righteous critic of the Vatican's stand on the gay marriage issue. This person was listed as being from Phoenix (which is how many thousands of miles from Red Sox Nation?) and listed the usual "crimes" of the Church through the centuries, including its supposed silence during the Holocaust. Mercy, my Lord!

    Thank goodness that the Vatican has spoken out on this topic and condemned same-sex marriages. We need such statements to retain our Catholic Faith!
