"The AIDS Walk raises money for organizations that actively and publicly promote homosexual activity, thus cooperating in the activities of these organizations and giving them a kind of legitimacy in the public forum," Burke wrote to Nelson. "This is completely unacceptable."

Amen!! An American bishop who is correct, courageous and steadfast! Praise God. Send more!

PING.

A Catholic bishop actually performing his duty should not be so rare as to be newsworthy, but still, it is welcome news.

Fr. John Hardon was right about this bishop. I'm so glad to see he's on track to become a cardinal.

Hammer said he did not agree with Burke's reasoning. "I don't understand why homosexuality is an issue in relation to the AIDS Walk - it's for people who are infected and affected by AIDS

BS&W! Ever since Ryan White the gay lobby has been using such movements as a vehicle to promote the legitimacy of homosexuality. At the same time they defame Reagan's slowness to move against AIDS as hostility to gays. Either AIDS is primarily a homosexual/bisexual disease or it is not. But gay activist talk out of both sides of their mouths and seldom are they contradicted.

Why doesn't this Catholic group, instead, form its own march and its own charity to care for those afflicted with HIV. A canny bishop would do well to get those on his left busy in efficiently caring caring for those suffering the wages of sin.

He sounds like one of the good guys. - Deo gratias; alleluia, alleluia.
I hope his brother bishops either follow or at least, more realistically, stay out of the way.

Father Michael Hammer, director of Catholic AIDS Ministry for the Milwaukee Archdiocese, said he does not see his participation in the AIDS Walk as promoting a homosexual lifestyle but as a way to help pay for compassionate care and support of people with AIDS and HIV.

Apparently, Archbishop Dolan is not as dogmatic on participation in an AIDS walk as Burke is.

Dolan and Hammer's approach seems the better one, IMO.

"What is of graver scandal, they both promote homosexuality among young people," Burke wrote.

"By participating in AIDS Walk Wisconsin, the Central Wisconsin HIV/AIDS Ministry would be cooperating materially with groups that act against the moral law."

A catholic bishop in veritable support of church doctrine! We need more like him! Bravo Bishop Burke.

Catholic Ping - let me know if you want on/off this list

These people need to understand that there IS a cure for AIDS. They don't need their walks and their banners and their pamphlets.

If everyone would adhere to Catholic doctrine, and practice heterosexual monogamy, AIDS would disappear.

A righteous man is found in Sodom.

Almost all AIDS is spread by irresponsible and perverted sexual practices or intravenous drug abuse. To raise money for organizations that promote and defend irresponsible and perverted sexual practices undermines the purpose for which the money is ostensibly raised.

Which is the same message the Roman chruch has essentiall y delivered to the Episcopals. Ecumenicalism is doa for now.

I like this Bishop even more now, the Pope has picked a good man, may God give him continued strength to stand up to the leftist assault on the Church and her teachings.
