Catholic Church says helping poor less important than denying same-sex benefits

The Washington Post’s OnFaith column reports that the Catholic Archdioces has told DC government that they’ll pack up their social programs if they’re put in a position where they have to extend benefits to same-sex married couples.

Councilmember Catania expresses my thoughts on this pretty succinctly: “If they find living under our laws so oppressive that they can no longer take city resources, the city will have to find an alternative partner to step in to fill the shoes.”

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
