I agree in certain circumstances, gambling is an evil addiction like alcohol, drugs, & tobacco. But IV the chief Archbishop in Edmonton II ban the use of bingo fundraising revenue IV the good of Edmonton Catholic students is quite frankly an affront to democracy. I seem to remember Captain Father John Patrick Francis Mulcahy of the Mobile Army Surgical Hospital (M*A*S*H?) 4077th in the 1950's Korean battlefield running Catholic endorsed bingos with 100% of the profits going to the Korean family's and orphans who were sick, injured, & displaced by the horrible realty of what is both stupid & retarded, war. If Father Mulcahy & the Catholic Church knew the gambling profits were going to help kids, just as they are now in Edmonton Catholic Schools towards general revenues, they would want to expand gambling revenues and opportunities. Not retract them as the Archbishop has done.
A Catholicism Error To Be Sure,
