And I Still Want To Know Where The Rest Of Our Fearless Shepherds Were?
A pathetically small number

Bishop Malone of the Diocese of Portland, Maine was instumental in defeating the pro-sodomite legislation that was on the ballot in that particular state. As one of the links below pointed out, Portland is a small diocese. How did they come up with $500,000 to fight the battle?

Here's one of the main reasons - less than 5 dozen bishops nationwide authorized funds to the battle waged by Bishop Malone against the forces of evil. Last time I checked, there were well over 300 members of the USCCB.

I just can't help but wonder where the hundreds of other fearless shepherds were? From CatholicCulture.org;
Numerous bishops gave money to help defeat same-sex marriage in Maine
November 12, 2009

Nearly five dozen bishops and dioceses nationwide contributed to the Diocese of Portland’s successful efforts to prevent the legalization of same-sex marriage in Maine, according to campaign finance records. The largest contributions came from the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and the Diocese of Phoenix, each of which donated $50,000 to the effort.

And you can click here to see down to the penny who gave and how much was given. Is YOUR Bishop on the list of those with the 'nads to stand up and be counted?

Ya know, there's an old joke that asks why the UN was never targeted by the terrorists on 9-11. Simple, the bad guys had too many friends that work there.

Hmmm... I wonder why so many Bishops refuse to join in the fight against militant homosexuality?

Off topic, but I wrote one for my favorite Cave-dwellers. Happy Veteran's Day a day late. God bless you all and God bless America.

It's no surprise our own bishop did not donate, but I think he's gay. I am disappointed that Bishop Provost from the Lake Charles Diocese didn't donate anything. Even the Archdiocese of New Orleans gave 2,000!

Apparently the Archdiocese of Santa Fe (wherein I reside) did not contribute. Hmmh . . . .
