Tell them what you think!
   Evidently, it's not only acceptable to lie, but to now coerce and employ others to lie for you if you are a Catholic leader.   

Here is my thought on that:   ---->

  "Peter", the Catholic Church, seems to have not learned from Christ.  Can you imagine the story changing had Jesus simply said to the authority 'I never said that'.  Or, if He had sent someone else to say it for him?

  Integrity in religion?  What a concept.

Email can be tricky, as one Catholic Diocese in Massachusetts is learning.

The diocese was apparently trying to come up with some legal reason it refuses to sell a 44-bedroom mansion in Worcester to a gay couple who wanted to renovate it. But the back-and-forth over email was still appended to the bottom of the bogus explanation that eventually made its way to the couple, according to Worcester Telegram columnist Dianne Williamson.

"If you're going to discriminate, you should cover your tracks," Williamson wrote in jest in a column today, noting that what actually unfolded could be illegal.

A real estate broker for the diocese said in an email she sent to the couple, James Fairbanks and Alain Beret, that it had suddenly found "other plans" for the property.

But at the bottom of the email was this note from Monsignor Thomas Sullivan:

“I just went down the hall and discussed it with the bishop,” Sullivan wrote to the broker, according to the Telegram. “Because of the potentiality of gay marriages there, something you shared with us yesterday, we are not interested in going forward with these buyers. I think they're shaky anyway. So, just tell them that we will not accept their revised plan and the Diocese is making new plans for the property. You find the language.”

Hallo Randy,
It has yet his determination that no man is perfect!
Thus, it is only possible through such "frank words" in the e-mails to prove his error.
We have also currently a scandal with such e-mails.

Sad to have discrimination at such levels. What would his God think, denying shelter and housing to those not accepted by others. Hugs

Hi Scottie;
I believe He would say "Get behind me Satan".

Hi Nikki;
Sometimes a peak behind the curtain destroys the image of the Great and Wonderful Wizard of Oz... Integrity is a necessary thing in Religion, and those who forget soon come up to the brick wall of truth all too soon.
