Why are Los Angeles's contributions to San Francisco -- Cardinal Levada and Archbishop Niederauer -- collaborators in turning the children over to "objectively disordered" adults? Why are these prelates not FIGHTING that? And why is the Church not stopping them?
The Chronicle article says Catholic Charities enlisted an avowedly homosexual San Francisco supervisor to provide advice on getting around the Church's order not to turn children over to homosexuals -- and now he gloats, blasphemously, "The Lord works in mysterious ways."
Listen to this: "'We were undeniably told to stop doing direct placements to same-sex couples,'' said [Catholic Charities] Executive Director Brian Cahill. 'But our new archbishop, George Niederauer, who had barely unpacked, gave us -- to his everlasting credit -- the opportunity to craft a solution that would be consistent with [C]hurch teaching and also faithful to our mission.'"
And this: "'There will be critics who say that kids will still be placed with same-sex couples,' said Cahill, who is planning 'an aggressive recruitment'' of potential adoptive parents among the archdiocese's parishes. 'That is true -- the largest potential number of adoptive parents in the foster care system are gay and lesbian couples. But this is what we are supposed to be doing. This is the work of the [C]hurch.'"
If you want to see where all this is leading, read the following article, also from today's Chronicle. The headline is, "When is it OK for boys to be girls, and girls to be boys?" and the subhead is, "Many kids want to look and act like the other sex..." It is about teachers encouraging "gender-variant behaviors" in innocent little kids. It starts out this way:
"Park Day School is throwing out gender boundaries. Teachers at the private Oakland elementary school have stopped asking the children to line up according to sex when walking to and from class. They now let boys play girls and girls play boys in skits. And there's a unisex bathroom. Admissions director Flo Hodes is even a little apologetic that she still balances classes by gender."

This article does not even ask whether these children have homosexual parents who might be influencing them.
