Recently, Carl Siciliano, executive director of the Ali Forney Center wrote an open letter to Cardinal Dolan. Carl’s letter about the LGBT homeless youth crisis in New York City was well written and informative. He asked the Cardinal to re-assess his current position and to come and meet the children he has hurt through his message from the pulpit to over 2 million Catholics. The Cardinals response was mean spirited and did not even address the issues of the homeless youth. The following links are to the actual letters written and what followed.
I’m sure that this will not be the end of the controversy so look for our next blog post on the subject. Please comment below. Let us know your views and how they contrast with Cardinal Dolan.
