Catholic Church in Washington D.C. will shut down services to the homeless and the poor if a gay marriage law is passed there
Edward Orzechowski, President and CEO of Catholic Charities of DC, speaking at the October 26 hearing on Washington, DC's same-sex marriage bill. Today, November 12, the Archdiocese threatened the Council to withdraw services to thousands of District residents over gay marriage. At the Council hearing, was answering questions from Councilmen Phil Mendelson and David Catania. As was discussed, Catholic Charities gets 75% of its money from public funds
, and according to Washingtonian, Orzechowski has a[n annual] paycheck of $268,000
. As Catania stated, that's taxpayer dollars going to an organization that says it does not intend to comply with anti-discrimination laws.

...or you could watch the YouTube hearings where a DC city council member, David Cantina, [who has a long history of supporting taxpayer dollars being given to Catholic Charites] says he ...finds it offensive
that DC Catholic Charities is willing to accept 40 million dollars of government funds, but be exempt from providing services in a fair and equitable manner. They arre threatening to shut down ALL public services if the major funding source [i.e. taxpayers] dont do what the Catholic Church wants.
Perhaps this means the church will then have more money to pay off the victims of pedophile priests.
