Dismayed by church involvement in politics

To the editor:

Imagine our dismay when we opened our bulletins Sunday after Mass at St. Mary’s in Auburn to read on the cover of the Courier of the Church’s involvement with two such offensive activities as the Social Security rally in Fairport and Cindy Sheehan’s misguided war protest in D.C.! Please rethink wasting the Diocese’s limited monies on these blatantly anti-Bush policies. Be assured that in light of such a misuse of Diocesan funds, there will be no contribution to the newly-renamed TGA from me nor many of my friends.

David Correll


EDITOR’S NOTE: The Catholic News Service brief noted that members of Pax Christi USA, a voluntary association of Catholic clergy, religious and laity, marched in Washington with Cindy Sheehan. This was not an official action by the Catholic Church.
