'Catholic Church sacrificing poor in fight against marriage equality' and other Friday midday news briefs

Catholic Church Cuts Funds To Immigrant Group Because It Doesn’t Discriminate Against Gay People - So much for "religious liberty."

Catholics clash over helping the poor, hewing to doctrine - And it's not just that group. Nine other groups in all are being hurt by this stringent nonsense.

Christian Groups Take Issue With Anti-Bullying Laws - Apparently protecting gay youth is a "plot" to mind control all youth into being gay.

The left's activist facts continue to attack poor Brian Brown - Cause apparently we on the left forced the National Organization for Marriage to write up a plan to exploit the disagreement over marriage equality between the black and gay communities. How did we do that? Why mind control. We are not all concentrated on children.

“Day of Dialogue” from Focus on the Family is Sacred Discrimination - It's almost that time of year again. The annual religious right attack on the "Day of Silence." Oh brother.

In their defense, Jesus did say "The poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me" (Matthew 26:11)

It's a shame that they chose to ignore more relevant passages, like Matthew 24:40 (Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me)

While I agree with the premise that -defunding charitable groups that help the poor because your BIGOTED LYING MEN0IN-DRESSES religious organization has a bigotry based political agenda- is a really bad and almost sinful thing to do, I have to say that I am glad this is coming to light.

The Catholics have a right to fund whomever they want. WE on the morally right side of the LGBT issues demand to be able to financially support those who support us; we have to let them do so also.

The best part though is that this is actually being reported and making headlines. It demonstrates unequivocally the homophobia and bigotry of the Catholic Church as a body, and highlights it's political activity.

Eventually the American Public and the IRS will take action. The public by distancing and not funding the church, the IRS by investigating and removing their tax exempt status.

Hopefully some group(s) like the Gill foundation or whomever will be willing and able to help provide stop gap funding until the targeted group(s) find more permanent funding.
