A Catholic bishop actually felt shame?! Or a sense of justice?

More like he felt a public relations disaster....

You may have a point. The scholarship is worth up to $40,000. That's a lot of money NOT going to a Catholic run College.

Congrats to Mr. Fuller, a heartfelt thank you to the Eychaner Foundation and a mild and tepid "smart move" to the Bishop.

Let's remember that Iowa is one of the States that granted gays and lesbians marriage equality. That put this particular Bishop in a tough spot.

I'd like to change the "smart move" comment to "you go girl"!
