COR UNUM ET ANIMA UNA

By Fr. Wilson (articles ) | May 26, 2004

The "Rainbow Sash Movement" will be entering Catholic churches in different places this coming Sunday -- Pentecost. Wearing the, um, gaily-colored sashes that are the symbol of their advocacy of active homosexual practice, they intend to present themselves for Communion.

Cardinal George of Chicago has aroused the ire of the Rainbow Sash leadership for directing his priests to refuse Communion. But the leadership claims that Cardinal Mahony contacted them -- to say they'll be welcomed.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    After this weekend, will Mahony be in Communion with the Rainbow Sash Movement or with Cardinal George, both, or neither? How can one be a Catholc and publicy deny the Catholic teaching that the RSM'ers do? I'm no canon lawyer, but isn't what's being suggested will occur is Los Angeles looks like a formal heresy unfolding under the approving eyes of a Cardinal.

    I can see the flyers now: Cardinal Mahony and the Rainbow Sash Movement welcome all to the ecumenical temple of Los Angeles to celebrate the birthday of the Catholic Church. Wine and crackers will be served and, of course, everyone is invited to partake of the blessed "birthday cake."

    The reason that Jesus ate and drank with sinners was to convert them to the sanctity that he desires for all of us. The criticism of the Pharisees was leveled at the fact that these persons had bad reputations. But the Holy Physician healed them as they desired healing. The Rainbow Bash people want their cake and to eat it as well. They cry out for the approval of their sinful acts, not for the redemption that comes from rejecting sin and accepting the Gospel that is grounded in God's laws.
