    • Quote of the Day September 16, 2014
      The tragic story [of sixteen-year-old Sergio Urrego's suicide] is why it matters that discussions of Catholic families include discussions of gay Catholic families. And of Catholic families who have gay members.And of Catholic institutions whose coldness and brutality towards those who are gay can make a life-or-death difference, especially for vulnerab […]
