ethical Catholics step away

The gutless punks who serve as bishops and board members in the Massachusetts chapter of Catholic Charities are knuckling under to Benedict the Nazi and trying to prevent gays from adopting. Seven courageous Catholics have stepped away, saying that such action "threatens the very essence of our Christian mission." Good for them.

Remember "inasmuch as ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me"?

That opportunistic fink Mitt Romney is getting his hands dirty, too:

Governor Mitt Romney met for nearly an hour yesterday to discuss the issue with Archbishop Sean P. O'Malley and the Rev. J. Bryan Hehir, president of Catholic Charities. The bishops have said they deserve an exemption from the state's antidiscrimination laws, which prohibit discrimination against gays, on religious freedom grounds. The Vatican has described gay adoptions as ''gravely immoral."

O'Malley and Hehir should be ashamed of themselves. They've evidently also forgotten their own ethnic history: remember "No Blacks, No Irish, No Jews"?
