Ad not money well spent

As far as I can judge from their Chronicle advertisement, the self-proclaimed “Catholic Community of San Francisco” seems to find it objectionable that Archbishop Cordileone believes in the teachings of the church. They seem to think that it is “mean-spirited” (their term) to believe that those teachings should mean anything.

Do they believe that an archbishop should only talk about those teachings of the church which are popular? Is that what they think Pope Francis is trying to say?

It was estimated that the advertisement would have cost tens of thousands of dollars. That seems to be a great deal of money for Catholics to give to a newspaper which has shown itself to be as pro-abortion as Planned Parenthood.

Did it occur to none of the signers that that sum of money might have been better spent in any number of other ways?
