SUFFER THE CHILDREN
The Catholic Archdiocese of Washington, D.C. has decided that providing foster care services is not as important as their opposition to same sex marriage. In a couple of weeks, the D.C. marriage bill will become law and the Archdiocese feels that the city’s religious exemptions are too narrow to give them any wiggle room. I guess placing children in the homes of loving gay couples or having to offer benefits to the same-sex partners of employees is so distasteful they decided that the abandonment of needy children is, um, Christ-like? Christian charity, indeed.
