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.

Given the flaming proclivity of Dolan's predecessor, and the usual lag time between the arrival of a Catholic Bishop and the re-institution of Catholic principles in a Diocese, Dolan has about another 2-5 years to blow off the Archdiocesan support for this bunch of sex-hustlers.
But he will.
Hammer's merely a zit with confusion. The model was given by Christ, (known for compassion, no?) when he said to the woman "Your sins are forgiven. Go, and SIN NO MORE.
