Wow. I thought our local vets were petty when they threatened to yank scholarships if they weren’t allowed to lead prayers in public schools, but now someone has topped them. Who, you may wonder? As if you couldn’t guess, the Catholic Church leads the way in small-minded extortion.
The Catholic Archdiocese of Washington said Wednesday that it will be unable to continue the social service programs it runs for the District if the city doesn’t change a proposed same-sex marriage law, a threat that could affect tens of thousands of people the church helps with adoption, homelessness and health care.
The Catholic Church weighs the lives of tens of thousands of sick, homeless people against the chance to slap down the dignity of gay people again, and obviously the most important thing is to make sure the primacy of heterosexuality is preserved.
