Letters to the Editor

Offended by Sarcastic Letter

Dear Editor: I am writing in response to Jack Foley’s letter (Nov. 29) commenting on an earlier letter calling for greater outreach to divorced and gay people.

Mr. Foley sarcastically proposes that such an outreach should also be extended to priests involved in sex scandals, drug dealers, rapists, murderers and terrorists as well.

As a divorced woman, I find it extremely offensive that he would have the audacity to lump homosexuals and divorced Catholics in with this group of criminals. His harsh judgmental attitude is unchristian.

This type of thinking is the reason why so many well-intended people have become estranged from the Roman Catholic Church. It is also what Pope Francis hopes to change.
