Never, no more

One of Rocky's favorite Patsy Cline songs is "Never, No More." That's the line that popped into my head when I read that DC Archbishop Wuerl is planning on closing 8 city schools in DC. One of them is my old school.

I will never give to any of Archbishop Wuerl's annual appeals again. Ever. That's it. I'm done. From now on, my charitable giving will go directly to the school, order or Catholic insitution and not through the archbishop's office.

I always thought that was considered an unspoken understanding to always give directly to the charity and never let the money pass through diocesian office pockets.

I know many Catholics who simply no longer tithe for these very reasons. The Church has become like an other business.

I have little respect for Wuerl. He should have asked Pelosi for the money for the schools since he likes her so much.

That's sad. I'm sorry to hear and you have a right to tithe where you have peace.

Your Rocky has a fine musical taste.

NO, nay never ... well, that is a fine old Irish song!
