Now oddly, Matt, who claims to be journalist, seems to have a problem with activists and bloggers holding the gay leadership accountable for their actions.
I guess Matt must have been absent when they, whoever they were, were teaching a course on financial evidence.
Following the money is a requisite for anyone involved in advocacy journalism.
Not that I'm accusing Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams of any anything illegal. Although I've never met them, I'm sure they're two stand up guys. They're put with their money where their mouth is, in this case running a full page ad which calls on having the Pope move the church forward on LGBT issues.
And as for Carl Siciliano, the director of The Ali Forney Center, I've not heard anything sordid about him, thus it seems his intentions, asking he Pope to come visit The Ali Forney Center, seem pure and genuine.
Just one problem, Matt: Jesus - and this only if you believe in the story of the psychotic mass murder who traveled to a barbaric region of the middle east to impregnate a virgin and have himself reborn as a human only to later be crucified to atone for sins no one's committed yet, is then resurrected, and promises to return so he can finish the hob he didn't get to complete the first time around- never said anything about a Pope, let alone about some guy who lives in a palace in the middle of Rome.
Spending $150,000 to beg a man who is really nothing more than a 78 year old executive selling an invisible product is not only a complete waste of money, it's also unethical.
Not that you would know anything about that.
