Catholic Charities giving needles to junkies?

Crap like this is why I don't give to Catholic Charities. That's like telling a drunk driver to use a scooter instead of a car becuase it's safer. The drunk, like the junkie is still slowing killing himself and making life hell for his family but at least you've "done something", and feel good about yourself.

My brother-in-law died of a drug overdose 3.5 years ago. He was HIV positive, homeless, and broken. At the time of his death, he was receiving help from an AMAZING Catholic organization here that offers support and housing to HIV positive, homeless men looking for help to get their lives together. Despite their help and best efforts, he overdosed. But I only mean to mention that because IMHO those are the programs our charity and public support as Catholics should be geared to. Giving clean needles to junkies only helps prevent them from dying of AIDS. It doesn't help them from dying from drugs.
