Unions, Gay Marriage and the Catholic Church

This year, it looks like the unions in Maryland, will be pulling out all the stops for the passage of gay marriage. See the WashingtonCompost (

Now, John Sweeney (AFL-CIO President) is a good friend of Cardinal Wuerl and was even honored by him. Each year, we have a Mass honoring labor (and he unions).

However, will the Church continue to support the AFL-CIO, esp. when they pumped in over $500,000 to support gay marriage in Maryland last year. Who knows how much they will spend this year.

Personally, I believe that Cardinal Wuerl and the other bishops will do nothing and continue their alliances with labor unions, as they continue their support of this issue, as well as, the worst president in US history.

I wonder what Msgr. Pope thinks about the Wuerl Sweeney alliance.I would like to see him blog about it.

Sweeney was cozy with McCarrick too. I picketed two of those public schmooze-ups over the years. One of them was the 2002 Catholic Charities gala, where McCarrick and the Sweeneys were co-chairs. Another reason not to support Catholic Charities.

You know, I hate to say this and I don't want it misinterpreted, but this all started with the Civil Rights Act. I am in favor of equal justice for all, and especially Civil Rights, but when they took away the right of private citizens to decide for themselves with whom they wanted to do business and they said that the owners of a privately owned restaurant or a bowling alley could not decide their clientele, it opened the door for all this. We should have seen it coming but as usual the liberals blindsided us with guilt for someone else's sins and we signed away our freedoms
