almsgiving IX

By Diogenes (articles) | Aug 01, 2004

Suppose you're the lay president of a Catholic university founded by the Society of Mary. You have $1,500 in your pocket and are inspired to give it away. To whom, or what, do you direct your alms?

(a) to a Marian shrine

(b) to another spiritual or corporal work of mercy

(c) to Senator Daniel K. Inouye, who has a 100% pro-abortion voting record and is a longtime opponent of efforts to define marriage as the union of a man and a woman.

If you're Dr. Mary C. Wesselkamper, president of Chaminade University of Honolulu, your answer is (c).

Richard Cross holds a doctorate in psychology, who has taught at the university level, including at Franciscan University. He is currently an educational researcher and consultant in the field of psychology and related disciplines.
