Regarding the topic of yesterday's post, I believe we suffered betrayal from another supposedly Catholic organization: the Maryland Catholic Conference. I'm on the MCC's email-blast list. While that piece of legislation was being discussed and voted upon, I don't recall hearing a peep from the MCC asking us to lobby our representatives to promote the Catholic teachings regarding both homosexuality and the role of parents in their children's lives. If in fact the MCC did speak out, please advise and point to the evidence in the comments box, and I'll be happy to stand corrected.
I don't think that will happen. I see no mention of this bill on the MCC site. Now you can bet your bottom dollar that had the subject matter of the legislation been 1) some "charitable" handout program, 2) death penalty, 3) gun control, 4) coddling of border-crashers, then the clarion cries of the MCC would have been incessant - for the support of progressive positions, of course. But when it comes to the fomenting of mortally sinful perversions and the undermining of parents, we hear crickets from the MCC. Do those initials really stand for "Maryland Communist Cabal"?
