GUEST,SINSULL BS: Clerical child abuse Part 94.... (850* d) RE: BS: Clerical child abuse Part 94.... 28 Mar 10


Been away - a house concert.
As others have observed, I noted the situation at Preble Street because it seems to me to scream hypocrisy. Support and hide priests who engage in homosexual activities while punishing a group that protects child victims for being proactive for homosexual rights especially when the Directors of that group voted against coming out for gay marriage.
A visit to Preble Street's website will answer any questions about the legality of their operations far better than I can.
Any private donor has the right to choose not to donate. I know many who refuse to donate to the Salvation Army because of their stand on homosexuality. I prefer to recognize the good they do and continue to give them money.
The money is only a part of the shelter's budget. In a year when the economy and unemployment has both reduced donations and increased the use of their facilities, this loss of funds hurt. Not to worry - a fundraising effort from sympathisers has replaced more than half the funds and is expected to cover it all.
Here is a link to the entire story including the diocese letter and Preble Street's response:
