An en­ti­tled at­ti­tude

San Francisco Chronicle Late Edition - - FROM THE COVER -

The de­mands of the Arch­bishop of San Fran­cisco re­gard­ing the lim­i­ta­tions of parish­ioners for in­door ser­vices, re­ally raised some ques­tions for me. Does he care about the health and safety of his flock, or has months of empty col­lec­tions bas­kets trig­gered his reck­less com­ments?

All over this coun­try, we have seen what hap­pens when you fill a church with wor­shipers: Peo­ple get sick and die, many of them mem­bers of the clergy. The fiasco at the Saints Peter and Paul Church nup­tials is a good ex­am­ple; the 10 at­ten­dees stricken could pos­si­bly have in­fected oth­ers.

The Arch­bishop needs to set aside his en­ti­tled at­ti­tude and fol­low the law. He was given a flock to care for, now he should do it!
