Archbishop Sean P. O'Malley stands strong!
"Archbishop Sean P. O'Malley has canceled plans to attend the annual Christmas dinner for Catholic Charities next month because the event is honoring Mayor Thomas M. Menino, a supporter of Catholic Charities who has also been an outspoken advocate of abortion rights and same-sex marriage...''In doing this he acts in accord with the US Catholic Bishops policy regarding public officials who are in conflict with Catholic teaching on specific issues, a policy formulated at plenary session of the Bishops' conference in June of 2004.'

PADRE POINT:
Good for the Archbishop...BUT why is Catholic Charities still honoring a supporter of abortion and same sex marriage?
