So, here we have the DC Council voting on this and at least three of the council members are "practicing" Catholics.
Yvette Alexander (Ward 7) is not only a member of Holy Redeemer Parish but she is on the Parish Council.
Murial Bowser (Ward 4) is a member of St. Anthony's Parish.
Vincent Gray (Chair) is also Catholic. However, I am not been able to identify which parish he is affiliated with.
Will their pastors speak with them about this? I hope so, but I doubt it.
Will the DC Catholic Conference lobby against this with them? I hope so but I don't think it will do much good.
Will the Archdiocese say something to them? I hope so but I also don't think it will do much good, even if they do.
Little by little, society's morals are slowly being eroded. Little by little, our pastors and bishops do not fight the good fight but seem to be more interested (at times) in being a good social service agency than fighting for morality.
Update: This morning on WMAL (630AM), there was a report on this and Susan Gibbs, the spokesperson for the Archdiocese said that if this was as important a vote as they say it is, then why is it not open up to public discussion. Good point. But even if we would be able to convince the three Catholics to vote against it, it would still pass.
