Catholic Church gives D.C. ultimatum

The Catholic Archdiocese of Washington said Wednesday that it will be unable to continue the social service programs it runs for the District if the city doesn't change a proposed same-sex marriage law, a threat that could affect tens of thousands of people the church helps with adoption, homelessness and health care.


WHAT? What kind of people think that's okay?

Here's what I never understand: to be married in the eyes of the Catholic Church, you have to be married *by* the Church. So technically, most of the world is living in sin anyway. The Church doesn't recognize civil marriages, and it doesn't recognize civil divorces. So who cares if the civil marriage law doesn't align with your religious teachings? It ALREADY doesn't. And I don't see too many Catholics out in the street trying to repeal the right to get divorced.

Oh no, you might have to provide benefits to people's partners. *rolls eyes* Because Jesus was big on hoarding money and sharing it only with folks you felt to be morally righteous. And you're going to stop serving the homeless and the sick over that? That just sounds like a temper tantrum born out of bigotry to me.
