NYC Catholic quits board over gay rights stance
Catholic charity board member resigns in NYC over cardinal's stance on gay rights
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' The head of New York City's Roman Catholic archdiocese faces a challenge to his stance on gay rights: the resignation of a church official who says he's "had enough" of the cardinal's attitude.

Joseph Amodeo told The Associated Press on Saturday that he quit the junior board of Catholic Charities after the cardinal, Timothy Dolan, failed to respond to a "call for help" for homeless young people who are not heterosexual.

The conflict began when the head of an organization that helps homeless gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender homeless young people wrote to ask Dolan to help the cause.



Dolan responded by saying he was adhering to church teachings. That prompted Amodeo to quit.

Dolan heads the largest diocese in the country and is one of America's most powerful clergy.
