Here it comes. Boston Globe columnist Eileen McNamara is calling for the Catholic Church’s tax-exempt status to be revoked because of our opposition to the legalization of same-sex marriage. Of course, McNamara wants to keep the exemption for the stuff she likes.
Spare Catholic Charities, the parochial schools, and the social service providers who truly embody the religious mission of the church, but pull the ticket on the corporate entity that would turn Holy Cross Cathedral into a precinct hall and the Sunday liturgy into a political rally.
Thus Eileen demonstrates her ignorance. She thinks the real mission of the Church is running social service agencies with barely perceptible religious character and inner-city private schools.
