    Lay leadership is not all it's cracked up to be.



    Lay leadership is an excellent theory that needs a bit more tweaking.

    What are lay folks thinking when the disagree with 4 Bishops? Naturally, that
    the Bishops are wrong. And not only wrong but...

    A statement issued by the seven says the [Bishop's] policy would undermine the church's moral priority of helping vulnerable children find loving homes.

    It goes on to say that the course the bishops are taking threatens the essence of their (quote) "Christian mission."

    How dumb and blind can these Bishops be?

    And how smart and faithful are these lay folks!

    Wanna bet something? I bet they are following their "conscience". To them the
    Church has only "proposed" that adoption of children by same-sex couples stinks.
    The lay's conscience has apparently rejected any such notion.

    The Bishops are at a disadvantage here, since they not only understand that
    the Church does not propose, but rather teaches.. and that they as Bishops are
    the teachers.

    Seven members of the Catholic Charities board are resigning in protest of a recent request by the state's Roman Catholic bishops.

    The church leaders want to exempt Catholic social service agencies from a law requiring them to place some adoptive children in gay households.

    The board members say they're "deeply troubled" by the course set by the four bishops. A statement issued by the seven says the policy would undermine the church's moral priority of helping vulnerable children find loving homes.

    It goes on to say that the course the bishops are taking threatens the essence of their (quote) "Christian mission."

    The Vatican opposes adoption of children by same-sex couples. The archbishop of Boston, as well as the bishops of Fall River, Worcester and Springfield have said the state's anti-discrimination laws are a violation of religious freedom.
