Levada and homosexual adoption

The Boston Globe reported today that Archbishop and soon-to-be-Cardinal William Levada, a friend of Cardinal Mahony, has ordered the Archdiocese of San Francisco to start obeying Church teaching by not letting any more homosexual pairs adopt children (click on this post's title to see).

"We'll be reviewing it," SF Archdiocesan spokesman Maurice Healy says of Levada's directive, according to the Globe. He did not say, "We'll be obeying it."

The Globe says Levada announced in his order that Brian Cahill, head of Catholic Charities of San Francisco (CCSF), has told him that while he was Archbishop of San Francisco, CCSF turned three children over to homosexual pairs.

Cahill told the Globe that his figures now show that in the past five years his agency handled the adoptions of 136 children and handed over five of them to homosexual pairs. Cahill told the Globe he thinks those handovers appropriate.

No word yet from new San Francisco Archbishop George Niederauer, a friend of Levada and of Cardinal Mahony, on what he plans to do about these developments.

We all should pray for those adopted children, of course.

Hey Quintero, I graduated from East L.A. College a long time ago.

I am happy to see that Archbishop Levada, now that he is no longer in Sad Francisco, is finally starting to ask his replacement to stand up to the politicians the way he really never did!

ATTENTION, remember there are just 21 days left until the annual invasion of the hetereodox, the Archdiocese of Lost Angels Religious Anti-Catholic Education Congress at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Will you be there to prayerfully demonstrate against this attack on our Faith?

Catholic Charities in Mass. will no longer provide ANY adoptions rather than give kids to gay couples. The governor is going to try to get a law passed excluding religious organizations from having to allow gay couples to adopt. And there are plenty of other adoption agencies that gay couples can go to.

Now I hope the CT archbishop will say that he will close the 4 Catholic hospitals rather force them to provide the abortion pill. Cardinal O'COnnor threatened to close New York hospitals rather than provide abortion, and NY backed down.

Dear Anonymous 2:17 a.m.

You are so right -- our bishops must let the politicians and the anti-Catholics know that we mean business and we will stand up for the right to life, the Church's rights and Catholic Truth.

Dear Ken,

That is very good -- "Sad Francisco."

Yes, and it would be great if Archbishop Levada would do more such things. Let us pray.

April 1st is April Fools Day, and it is the day that “Concerned Roman Catholics of America, Inc.” will be picketing the Archdiocese of Los Angeles Religious Education Congress (I prefer to call it the “Anti-Catholic Religious Education Congress!”.

We will be conducting our prayerful protest demonstration in front of the two main Exhibit Hall entrances from 9:00 AM until roughly 6:00 PM.

We are now in the process of preparing poster signs for this, and very much would appreciate suggestions as to what the themes of these posters should be.

Please email me at: crcoa@dslextreme.com or call me at: 714-491-2284 with any ideas on this you may have.

Remember there are just 12 days left until the annual invasion of the hetereodox, the Archdiocese of Lost Angels Religious Anti-Catholic Education Congress at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Will you be there to prayerfully demonstrate against this attack on our Faith?

God bless, yours in Their Hearts,
