Catholic Church and gay marriage in DC

Why is the Catholic Church trying so hard to drive me away. The latest:
The Catholic Archdiocese of Washington said Wednesday
that it will be unable to continue the social service programs it runs
for the District if the city doesn't change a proposed same-sex
marriage law, a threat that could affect tens of thousands of people
the church helps with adoption, homelessness and health care.
Under the bill, headed for a D.C. Council vote next month,
religious organizations would not be required to perform or make space
available for same-sex weddings. But they would have to obey city laws
prohibiting discrimination against gay men and lesbians.
Short version: we don't like you being nice to gay people so we're going to stop help you address the needs of the city's troubled and impoverished citizens. You know, I really don't think it's that hard to figure out what Jesus would have to say about that.
