Opposing Homosexuality in San Francisco

by Steve Ray on March 30, 2006

Dear Friend of Ignatius Press,
Sometimes a story is so important we want to draw your attention to it right away. That is the case with this story we posted on IgnatiusInsight.com today. San Francisco Archbishop George Niederauer is a man who faces one of the most difficult challenges of any episcopacy–this story tells you why.
Here's the story:
SAN FRANCISCO, March 30, 2006 _ A firestorm of defiance over Church teaching on homosexuality has been ignited following the appointment of George Niederauer as archbishop of San Francisco and a Vatican directive telling San Francisco Catholic Charities to halt gay adoption. Two Catholic institutions are in open dissent on homosexuality: Catholic Charities, which continues to assert its right to place children with homosexual parents, and the Jesuit University of San Francisco, which has a decades-long history of nurturing homosexual ideology and expressions. Meanwhile, at least two pastors in San Francisco-area parishes not dominated by homosexuals gave sermons last week supporting adoption by homosexuals.
And as always, go to IgnatiusInsight.com for lively and thoughtful commentary.
Please keep the archbishop of San Francisco and all our bishops and priests in your prayers as our Church navigates these contentious times–but always with Our Lord's help and guidance.
Mark Brumley
President of Ignatius Press
