Former Ambassador to the Holy See, Thomas Patrick Melady, who is also one of the co-chairs of Mitt Romney's Catholic outreach team, has an important essay up at Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good about the persecution of gays in Uganda. Melady also served as an ambassador to Uganda. Like Bishop Cupich's letter I cited Monday, here is another example of an orthodox Catholic calling on Catholics not to traffic in anti-gay bigotry. Coming from such an illustrious member of the Republican Party's Wise Men, let's hope Melady's counsel reaches far and wide and deep. You can read his essay here.
