Idiot of the Week: Catholic Archdiocese of Washington

catholic-priest.gifThis bit of idiocy is perfect for pointing out the hypocrisy of the Catholic Church, and while I expect you've already heard about it, I figured it could use additional publicity.

The Catholic Archdiocese of Washington has provided Washington D.C. with a simple ultimatum: change a proposed same-sex marriage law or the Catholics will stop providing social service programs to the city. I so wish the city would come back with something like, "Drop your social service programs, and we'll revoke your tax exempt status."

The Catholics are upset because the law under consideration would prevent them from discriminating against homosexuals. That's it. They are threatening to drop their social service programs to make it easier for them to discriminate against others. How's that for Christian morality?

Let them drop their programs, and see how much lower their reputation can sink. Right now, their positive contributions in various communities are the only thing preventing them from being shutdown for pedophilia. If they want to throw that away, let them.
