Behold the power of faith and the miracle that is the modern day Catholic Church:

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.

We’d rather hurt the poor, the underprivileged, the lesser among us, than to deal with teh gay. We’re willing to hang those we serve out to dry in order to continue to practice our discrimination.

YaY Catholics!

Aside: So let me get this straight. Public funds to discriminate against gay and lesbian citizens is fine. Public funds to allow women and their doctors to make reproductive decisions and control their own bodies is evil. Gotcha. I just wanted to make sure I understand the ground rules here.
