Good News (I guess)!

San Francisco Catholics who were dismayed to learn that our local Catholic Charities is helping same-sex couple to adopt children will be relieved to learn that Catholic Charities actually accepts no money from the Catholic Church.

At least, that's according to this article in the "Bay Area Reporter" whose motto is "Serving the gay, lesbian, bisexual, & transgender communities since 1971."

Then what were all those second collections about? And where does one apply for a refund?

Hat tip: Uncle Di.

Fr. Malloy,
Welcome to the Oakland Diocese! S.F.'s loss is our gain. I was wondering if you or any of your bolg's readers know if CC of the East Bay is involved in similar activities? In my opinion it's a moot point if CC of S.F. takes money, as they are still under the authority of the Archbishop.

Why are they permitted to keep the word 'Catholic' in their name?
