HRC, Freedom To Marry to Catholic Church: Feed the hungry, not NOM's coffers!

by Jeremy Hooper

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? We have. We know Catholics are fair-minded people. Today HRC President Joe Solmonese and Freedom to Marry President Evan Wolfson sent a letter to Cardinal Timothy Dolan, President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, asking him to end support of NOM.
