Have you ever wondered why hospitals, soup kitchens, and even parish churches are being closed for lack of funds while the Catholic Church hierarchy and affiliated organizations like the Knights of Columbus are funneling millions of dollars into the anti-gay National Organization for Marriage?

Of course if the NOM crowd did lose Catholic Church support, they could always turn to the nation's learned bodies of constitutional law, science, psychology, business, and civil rights to support them instead. Oh wait a minute—NO, they absolutely could not!
