It has been widely speculated that the archbishop's DVD cost $1, 000, 000 to make and send---yes, one million dollars!
When we were collecting DVDs at the Basilica this Sunday (tally to follow soon) a thirteen year old named Annika, approached us with handouts she had made titled "What can $1,000, 000 do".
The following is an exact quote of Annika's handout and what her brilliant research uncovered:
It can feed 2,325,581 people with a cheese sandwich.
It could house 185 people for a year in a one bedroom apartment.
It could buy 800,000 bus passes.
It could heat the Basilica of St. Mary for 8 years.
It could change peoples lives.
But 1 anonymous donor decided to donate $1,000,000 to send 400,000 DVD's across Minnesota to deny the right of gay marriage.
What do you think this is right?
Now here's someone who truly understands the Christian message!
