...the popish poohbahs of Porkopolis, aka the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati, announces that it has sent a letter to 113 schools directing them to avoid participating in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge because the ALS Society is anti-life. It seems that supporting ALS research may encourage the use of stem cells, which we all know are tiny people waiting to be born and discover cures for cancer and free-thinking. I ask all of you to please continue supporting the ice bucket challenge and research into not just ALS, but breast & prostate cancer, AIDS, MS, MD, and new antibiotics. Furthermore, please let the Archdiocese of Cincinnati know how you feel. Call or write to Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr, 100 E 8th St, Cincinnati, OH 45202,
(513) 421-3131. You can also email the diocese via the Contact Us button on its homepage www.catholiccincinnati.org. Further information is available at slate.com and the Pittsburgh Press web site. Thank you and have a pleasant weekend

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
