Archdiocese Spends $$ on Wuerl Promotion

The Archdiocese of Washington (and by extension Pope Francis) does not get it.  From today's LifeSiteNews:

The Archdiocese of Washington purchased advertising on CNN’s website to promote Pope Francis’s complimentary regard for outgoing Cardinal Archbishop Donald Wuerl - paid for through its communications office, which gets financial support from Catholics in the pews. 

The ad is flagged by CNN at the top with the message, “Paid Content,” and a disclaimer appears beneath the archdiocese’s own headline, resembling a sub-headline, stating, “Sponsored by the Catholic Standard.” The Standard is the newspaper for the Archdiocese of Washington.

This is why I have stated over the years, and I have put my money where my mouth is: Do Not Give to the Cardinal's Appeal!
