Just a few quick updates for readers. First, here’s the well-done video ad from KeepMASafe that supposedly sparked the transgender parish administrator at St. Ignatius to publish his letter in the parish bulletin saying people should vote “yes” on Question 3. Please share the video with friends and family members so they know they should vote “No” on Question 3.
In view of there being zero activity by the MA Catholic bishops on this, those fighting this battle need any donation they can get, regardless of how small. Here’s how to donate:
votenoto3.com No-holds-barred group (MassResistance) that knows how to get in the trenches and fight hard.
keepmasafe.com: This is the pro-family group that did all of the work to get this measure on the ballot.
These links bring you directly to pages where you can donate online. They need every dollar you can spare.
Regarding the Bishop Mark O’Connell Town Hall meeting last night in Wakefield, due to an emergency, BCI was unable to attend, but people who attended have started giving us reports. If you were there or know someone who attended, please post your feedback and/or notes in Comments belowon this post or email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or submit via the anonymous Contact Us link.
We are told that Bishop O’Connell said Cardinal O’Malley and regional bishop Reed are aware of the situation at St. Ignatius reported in our most recent post and “something will be done.” That is usually code for “absolutely nothing will be done,” but we shall see. And Bishop O’Connell tried to reframe the root cause of the clergy sexual abuse crisis as not being about homosexuality more than once. He got a lot of push-back from people in the audience. We will share more details as soon as we’ve heard from more people who were there.
