Shame on the Diocese of Wilmington

Bankrupt and pleading poor mouth with regard to settling child sexual abuse cases, on 16 July 2009 our Diocese still found $200 to send to Maine for the campaign to overturn same-sex marriage.

Look, the Catholic Church is against same-sex marriage. But to discover that in our cash-strapped Diocese the decision was made to send even a nominal amount to a political campaign multiple states away is shameful.

From what I understand of the economics of our charities, the Diocese just spent enough on that to have fed an additional hundred or so of Wilmington's poor on Thanksgiving.

I guess I should just be happy that we didn't send $50,000--like the Arch-Diocese of Philadelphia did.

I'd like to say I am shocked and speechless - but then again - nothing that certain cathloic officials do shocks me anymore. I real feel sorry for well-meaning catholics that have to see their own church stoop down this low.
