NEW AT NOON — CALLING OUT CATHOLIC CHARITIES.

DOZENS OF PROTESTERS RALLIED OUTSIDE THE GROUP’S BOARD MEETING THIS MORNING.

NEWS 4’S JENN SCHANZ JOINS US IN THE NEWSROOM TO EXPLAIN WHY — JENN.

MEL — THE COALITION FOR ECONOMIC JUSTICE NOT ONLY WANTS BISHOP MALONE TO STEP DOWN AS HEAD OF THE BUFFALO DIOCESE, BUT IT ALSO WANTS HIM OFF THE.
CATHOLIC CHARITIES BOARD OF TRUSTEES.

THAT’S NOT ALL THE GROUP IS DEMANDING.
((“THEY CANNOT USE OUR TAX DOLLARS TO HATE.”)) CATHOLIC CHARITIES RECEIVES PUBLIC MONEY, AND THESE PROTESTERS SAY AFTER ITS RECENT DECISION TO PHASE OUT ITS FOSTER CARE AND ADOPTION.

PROGRAM, THAT PUBLIC MONEY SHOULD BE RECONSIDERED. CATHOLIC CHARITIES, WHICH IS SPONSORED IN PART BY THE BUFFALO DIOCESE, HAS SAID IT CANNOT CONTINUE THE PROGRAMS, BECAUSE CONTRACTING AGENCIES ALLOW SAME-SEX COUPLES TO FOSTER AND ADOPT.

YOU WANT TO SERVE THE PUBLIC AND USE PUBLIC DOLLARS, 18 MILLION OF OUR PUBLIC DOLLARS, YOU CAN’T DISCRIMINATE.”)) ((“QUEER FOLKS CAN LOVE EACHOTHER AND THEY CAN BE.

IN SAME SEX COUPLES AND THAT’S THE LAW OF THE LAND. AND IF CATHOLIC CHARITIES WANTS TO DISCRIMINATE, THEY CAN USE THEIR CATHOLIC APPEAL MONEY TO DISCRIMINATE.

BUT THEY CAN’T USE OUR PUBLIC DOLLARS.”)) THE GROUP CALLED SPECIFICALLY TODAY FOR THE ERIE COUNTY LEGISLATURE AND NEW YORK STATE TO RE-THINK ITS FINANCIAL SUPPORT OF CATHOLIC CHARITIES. WE ARE EXPECTING TO HEAR FROM CATHOLIC CHARITIES’ CEO LATER TODAY ON THIS VERY ISSUE.
