Cardinal Levada's edict

San Francisco Chronicle

But in response to a recent inquiry by a Boston Globe reporter regarding his role in the placement of three children with gay parents during his time as archbishop, Levada sent an e-mail to the San Francisco archdiocese making his opposition to the practice clear.
