The Environmental Outreach Committee...Can we Recycle them?

Once again, the Archdiocese has put together a Lenten Stewardship Calendar produced by the Environmental Outreach Committee. Now, it is not as bad as last year, nor as bad as the one used by Blessed Sacrament but still WHY ARE WE WASTING MONEY ON THIS???

I wonder how much energy was spent on creating this? Maybe we could have reduced the carbon footprint even more if it was not created.

I was hoping that they would have finally gone away, like ALGORE and his Global Warming scam but nope, like Bram Stoker's Dracula is seems to come back from the dead.

And to add insult to injury, they are going to have a one day Social Ministry conference. Why? What is the value other than to show that they are "doing something."

How many people will attend? How far will they drive (and energy spent) to get there? How much energy have they spent to put this together? How much energy will they spend to hold the conference? Why are they ordering lunches which you can purchase? Why don't they ask everyone to brown bag it? These are the questions inquiring minds want to know.

And then the Cardinal wonders why I won't give.


UPDATE: On the same-sex marriage bill in Maryland, it seems that Del. Robert Garagiola (D-Montgomery) was not simply a supported but one of the key co-sponsors of this legislation. This comes from State Sen. Richard Madeleno's email to constituants. Well, Cardinal Wuerl, what say you?

I believe Garagiola is a senator and he was indeed one of same-sex "marriage" most ardent proponents. If he thinks that this sham is the same as his marriage, I can only feel sorry for his wife and daughters.

Maybe we should all start identifying ourselves as West Point graduates to him to see how he feels about that.
