Here's a story from the Boston University Newspaper that is quite interesting...

According to the story - Menino has been removed..

Mayor Thomas Menino, recently re-elected to a fourth term as Boston's top officeholder, is facing strong criticism from an unusual arena: the Catholic community.

Upset with the mayor's positions regarding sensitive theological issues like abortion and same-sex marriage, Boston Archbishop Sean O'Malley has removed Menino's name from the guest list of next week's Catholic Charities fundraiser, at which Menino was scheduled to be the keynote speaker. Since O'Malley's announcement, a flurry of heated exchanges has taken place between the mayor's office, the Boston Archdiocese and Catholic activist groups.

Menino, a Catholic, dealt with the ire of the Boston Archdiocese this past summer, when he leveled criticism at church leaders for their decision to shut down the Our Lady of the Presentation school in Brighton two days before scheduled graduation. His support of same-sex marriage and endorsement of condom distribution in schools have also fueled the recent attacks.

I think that is quite premature - - BUT - keep those emails coming and it could well be a prophetic story.
