Chelsea group that helps immigrant workers returns Catholic grant over gay issues

The Globe reports the Chelsea Collaborative decided to return a $40,000 grant after a visit from a Catholic Campaign official, who began "speaking at length to the group about the need to avoid work that conflicted with Catholic teachings, including activities that might 'support the gay lifestyle.'

    The "gay lifestyle"

    Is code for "we don't care about your actual being, we're going to define you by alleged behavior". What a convenient way for the church leadership (and others) to dehumanize people for who they are. What a bunch of hypocrites. It's a good reminder of, and reinforces the reasons, why I walked away from them years ago.

    Here's to hoping

    I've posted the donation link and the link to the story over on Reddit's atheism board. This is a sub-group of the people online who rewarded that bus monitor with a few hundred thousand dollars and she didn't even lose any money...just took abuse from a bunch of bastards on a bus while one of them filmed it and put it on YouTube. Hopefully they can help where UHub's readership is a bit smaller in numbers. They are often willing to help when it comes to making up for where the Church fails people.
