Catholic Charities honors DC mayor who favored abortion, same-sex marriage
Catholic World News - January 17, 2012
Catholic Charities USA and Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington have bestowed the “Keep the Dream Alive” Award on Anthony Williams, who served as mayor of Washington from 1999 to 2007. Williams, a Catholic, supported abortion and same-sex marriage.
Also receiving awards were USDA Under Secretary Kevin Concannon and former Catholic Charities board member Janet Pape. The three were honored at a “Keep the Dream Alive” Mass at St. Aloysius Church in Washington on January 16.
“I can think of no better way to commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy than by honoring individuals who keep his dream alive through their advocacy and service to the poor,” said Father Larry Snyder, president of Catholic Charities USA.
