Words fail:

I’ve always found the Book of Matthew rather beautiful: “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me….”

It goes on to say, “Unless you live in a city where gays can get married, in which case, to hell with it.”

OK, it doesn’t really say that last part, but the D.C. Archdiocese may be confused on the point.

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.

Under the bill, headed for a D.C. Council vote next month, religious organizations would not be required to perform or make space available for same-sex weddings. But they would have to obey city laws prohibiting discrimination against gay men and lesbians.

Here’s a great idea for feeding the world’s hungry: foreclose on the Vatican, sell it, and use the money to buy everyone food. When I was there a few years back, estimates on the value of the Vatican and its contents were on the order of a few trillion.

Update: Gherald parrots something that Kain spotted that indicates that this analysis is wrong. I tend to agree.

    The Catholic Church has tried to control people's lives since its conception. Martin Luther lead the first rebellion when he tried to reform the church. And they wonder why their numbers are declining, why they are short nuns and priests, and why their donations are down. One of the largest problems that Rome has is the separation of church and state that our constitution demands. I wonder how long it will be before this diocese is bankrupt?

    I was raised on Dr. Dobson, and have just sent him a letter requesting his assistance to help me stop loosing faith in the Christian Church. My Mom respects Dr. Dobson as much or more than any other Christian leader, and she is interested to see his response. I only started learning the truth about the 9/11 attacks last fall. It took me an entire year to convince my own parents to listen to me, and begin reviewing the evidence for themselves. Now that they have thoroughly and objectively taken a fresh look into all the available evidence, they too are now aware of how badly we have been deceived. They now fully support my mission to find out what really happened to 2,993 of our fellow countrymen that fateful September morning. My mom is very interested to see if/how Dr. Dobson will respond. Please read my open letter to Dr. Dobson and share your thoughts at………


    Does Christ's Church really stand for TRUTH & JUSTICE? That is the question!

      While the love of money is the root much evil, the origin of sin was the turning away of man from the Lord. This ranting about 9/11 is just another fanatic's attempt to gain his five minutes of fame at the cost of the fallen.
