In a stunning turn of events, Archbishop Sean P. O’Malley and leaders of Catholic Charities of Boston announced yesterday that the agency will end its adoption work, deciding to abandon its founding mission, rather than comply with state law requiring that gays be allowed to adopt children.
The Rev. J. Bryan Hehir, president of Catholic Charities of Boston, and Jeffrey Kaneb, chairman of the board, said that after much reflection and analysis, they could not reconcile church teaching that placement of children in gay homes is ”immoral” with Massachusetts law prohibiting discrimination against gays.
”This is a difficult and sad day for Catholic Charities,” Hehir said. ”We have been doing adoptions for more than 100 years.”
Hehir, it is absolutely obvious that you don’t give a fuck about the orphans, otherwise you wouldn’t put their welfare as blackmail exchange token against a policy you don’t like. You betray them in the classic catholic way.
I take solace in the fact that these scumbags who like to call themselves Christians, no matter how hard they tried haven’t been able to find one single word against teh fags pronounced by Jesus in the Gospels*
Jesus actually based his message on including the outcast of society in one’s company, in one’s family so to speak, breaking bread with sinners, tax collectors (in an occupied land like Palestine they were the worst offenders evar, they were the collaborators of the enemy, the invader’s finks), adulterers.
denying an abandoned child a good family because of one’s anti-gay stance is… well, let’s hear it from the man these people pretend to worship:
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me,
naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.’
Then the righteous will answer him and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink?
When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you?
When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?’
And the king will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’
“One of these least brothers of mine”, Archbishop O’Malley. Listen to your King, for once.
* Jesus instead had very staunch pronouncements against divorce: the reason of course being that men would divorce (ie dump) their wives, leaving them with no financial support and no job skills in conditions of abject poverty. hence, Jesus was against divorce to protect the weaker party, ie the women. but no word against teh fags, alas. maybe God doesn’t really hate them, who knows
