San Francisco’s Archbishop George Niederauer tomorrow night will honor a “philanthropist” who, in recent years, has opposed parental notification for underage girls before they have an abortion and supported public funding for embryonic stem cell research. Niederauer will present George M. Marcus with Catholic Charities CYO’s Loaves and Fishes Award at a dinner and “gala” to be held at the Westin St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco.
Well I could see a "Goats and Tares" award being presented instead. A Loaves and Fishes award though is too ironic. In Jesus’ miracle thousands were feed from a small number of loaves and fish and in embryonic stem cell research thousands are killed to cure no one.
