    This is nothing short of outrageous. New York City, the See of Cardinal Timothy Dolan, is the epicenter of the gay subculture in the US. "Alternative" families have been increasing in number over the past two decades,usually through artificial insemination of surrogates. The Church remains deathly silent on this grave moral evil. Woe to those prelates who do not speak out against this latest attack on the family, and against the clear teaching of Christ. Defend the innocents among us.

    It's hard for us every day ordinary Catholics to understand how this happens. Can anyone just use the name Catholic?

    So we have a group with "Catholic" in its title awarding a show that celebrates a gay couple with an adopted daughter? Phil, I woke up a bit discouraged this morning, and this isn't helping ... Prayer time.
