Catholic Charities

Archbishop Sean O'Malley, head of Boston's Archdiocese (the largest in the country) decided it was more important to be a bigot than charitable.

O'Malley decided that instead of supporting Catholic Charities, an organization that is part of the Archdiocese of Boston, he would not go to one of their most important events of the year because Mayor Thomas Menino is the guest of honor. According to the Boston Globe, "Menino, like other supporters of Catholic Charities, focuses often on job training, affordable child care, housing opportunities for the poor, feeding programs, and summer camps for needy youngsters."

Why would O'Malley refuse to go to such an event? Because Menino also happens to support equality in marriage and women's privacy.

Well, Archbishop O'Malley, I have one question: What would Jesus do?
