Vote again for Father Thompson Center!

The Father Harry Thompson Center has a chance of being awarded $50k for its wonderful mission in a devastated city. Go daily to the Burger King "Campaign" site to vote for the Center, and give the city's neediest a chance to turn their lives around.
(Father Thompson was one of the New Orleans Jesuit community's finest: may he rest in peace!)

The Roman Catholic Church owns half the city of New Orleans. It needs the $50,000.00 much less than City Park, which receives a paltry amount of funding from the New Orleans city budget.The park, whose size ranks second to only New Yorks Central Park, receives no funding from the state. Unless you can teach the ducks to pass a collection plate, how about practicing a little charity and let the park have this one.

Give me a break, the Catholic church needs money like the polar bears need more snow. They are the single wealthiest entity in the WORLD. They go to third world countries & tell women it is O.K. if their husbands rape them & any forn of birth control will send their souls to Hell. These are the people you think need MORE money!!!

Yep pretty much agree with the previous two posters. Don't really see the point of giving the catholics more money. Guilt and death aside I'll vote for the ducks and choo-choos any time.

I have a sneaking suspicion that "anonymous" 1, 2 and 3 are all the same person with the same unfounded bias that allows him/her to dismiss the needs of the homeless simply on the grounds that they will be served by the despicable Catholic Church.
How very sad.

pleezze> the park definitely gets my vote. Have you seen it lately, it's a disgrace. It needs help NOW the center can wait or find other ways to raise money. The park is on the verge of resembling a landfill.

Can't believe christians would vote cash in their corner when a simple drive through the park would embarass most thinking adults. It truly is abandoned looking. Where's the christian charity?

If the Catholic church owned the city of New Orleans, would Ray Nagin have been re-elected? I don't think so. Anonymous 1,2 and 3, tjsno, and lower gard are embarassed by the condition of trees and ducks in City Park but not by the fact that human beings are homeless and starving and without resources? Where is the christian charity in that?
