We received the following announcement from  StopPatriarchy.org

PROTEST ARCHBISHOP CORDILEONE'S INSTALLMENT AS METROPOLITAN ARCHBISHOP OF S.F.
SALVATORE JOSEPH CORDILEONE…
…WHO HAS NOTHING BUT HATRED FOR WOMEN… At the beginning of his appointment to Bishop of Oakland in 2009, Salvatore Cordileone spoke to & trained hundreds of high school youth to fight for the anti-abortion agenda, at “Pro-Life Boot Camps.” In 2010, he spearheaded resistance to abortion aid in Obama’s healthcare plan.  This year, he is working hard to get Catholics together and pass an initiative in California to mandate parental consent for minors who need abortion care.   
NOTHING BUT HATRED FOR QUEER PEOPLE… In 2008, Cordileone raised $1.5 million, gave $6,000 out of his own pocket, and organized major evangelist figures such as James Dobson into activism to pass Prop 8, banning gay marriage in California.  Two years later he was named Chairman of the Promotion & Defense of Marriage Subcommittee to ban same sex marriage.  This year, he has repeatedly expressed public support of an initiative in North Carolina, again denying families the financial and legal benefits provided to heterosexual couples.    
…BUT SYMPATHY FOR RAPISTS! Cordileone was appointed Bishop of San Diego in 2002; he left in 2007 as they were filing for bankruptcy protection in response to 150 claims from sexual abuse victims.  Since then, he refuses to release a list of names of the 26 priests in Oakland who have sexual abuse allegations against them, to the non-profits that help abuse survivors.
