...honors the Culture of Death.
Last night, Catholic Charities of San Francisco chose to honor George M. Marcus and the Levi Strauss, Inc. for their philanthropy. The Chairman of the Board of Catholic Charities CYO, Archbishop George Niederauer, was in attendance, despite pleas from many Catholics to either find new honorees or to boycott the function. In case you don't know the details, and to see why this is so outrageous, go here. Scroll to the entry for "April 11."
I don't think it can be said much better than by our friend Quintero down at "LA Catholic." He absolutely nails it:
"So when we think of all the San Francisco swells and nabobs banqueting and congratulating each other on "helping the children," we will also be thinking of all the dead children who are figuratively lying at the doorstep of the posh hotel, just as poor Lazarus lay outside Dives' doorstep in Jesus' parable (St. Luke 16).
True Lazaruses are the aborted babies, abandoned, unclothed, covered with wounds, helpless -- and despised and ignored by the rich and powerful."
