lfred E. Smith dinner, mark October 20, 2016, as the date when the Archdiocese of New York reached an all-time low representing its constituents.
When arguably the premier charitable Catholic organization in the country literally provides a platform for the staunchest supporter of pro-choice causes, it’s a sign worthy of the Book of Revelations.
To have that same individual invoke Jesuit beliefs, quote Pope Francis and lecture the audience on the beauty of life is beyond comprehension. This is the same person whose political operatives complain about the “bastardization” of our Faith.
Mother Church and the Archdiocese of New York are above this. We Catholics deserve better from both institutions.
