By Deb PetersonDoesn't anybody understand the reason he and others bishops did this? Apparently no one at the Post does...Here's a clue.
Organizers of St. Louis' annual AIDS walk have asked for a meeting with leaders of the Catholic Archdiocese. The issue? Archbishop-elect Raymond Burke and his apparent opposition to the AIDS walk in his home state of Wisconsin. Burke once wrote to an HIV outreach ministry in Milwaukee asking the group to refuse to participate in that city's AIDS walk. The St. Louis walk draws thousands each year, raising more than $100,000 for local AIDS programs. Organizers fear a rift with the city's top Catholic could hamper fund-raising efforts. The walk here is slated to step off at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 17, in Kiener Plaza.
