Atlanta Archdiocese: No More Support for Komen


The announcement was a little weak and a little late: the Archdiocese of Atlanta has directed its parishes, missions, and schools of one million Catholics to end support or participation in activities related to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The chief reason mentioned was Komen's grants to abortion provider Planned Parenthood.

It's interesting to read some of the comments about why the Archdiocese is wrong for doing this. The reasons, as a rule, are irrelevant; what they amount to is little more than a general disdain for the Catholic Church and/or Catholic teaching. Prejudice is alive and well in the AJC readership (that it also thrives at the AJC is just a given).
