detroit catholic church convenes interfaith meeting on economy

As part of TTAC’s emphasis on the human side of the Motown’s meltdown, we’re keeping our editorial eye out (ouch) for stories on the human impact of this debacle. After all, whether or not the Big 2.8’s CEOs succeed in liberating Uncle Sam of enough money to live to die another day, hundreds of thousands of people are going to suffer [NB: the blame belongs with the bailout brigade]. And so, “at the invitation of Cardinal Adam Maida, archbishop of Detroit, 12 Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders will gather at Sacred Heart Major Seminary on Thursday, December 4, to share how their faith communities are responding to the economic crisis in metro Detroit and discuss possible future initiatives.” We put in a call to the group for more info, but they’re too busy to schmooze or spin. In any case, we salute Detroit’s religious community for recognizing the scope, scale and pace of this reckoning. They have their work cut out for them.

    Ah, Woodward Avenue....formerly, America's "Piety Hill" with a good number of grand cathedrals from the Fisher Freeway north to 7 Mile. Ironically, Sacred Heart was built with $$$ from the Fisher Brothers (GM money). I guess Charles and Edward Fisher wanted a massive cathedral in their backyard since it was built two blocks over from their opulant mansions.
