the story we're not covering today...

By Diogenes (articles ) | May 24, 2010

 ... is a story about disruption of Pentecost Sunday Mass at the cathedral in Chicago. Because there wasn't a disruption.

Homosexual activists of the Rainbow Sash organization had threatened to confront Cardinal Francis George during the Mass. Instead, they claimed victory after they "entered" the cathedral. Which is not a terribly impressive achievement, nor even a propaganda victory, since the doors were open.

    Maybe the Cardinal can send Fr. Pfleger to talk to them. Feh.

    Don't be surprised if they attempt this on "Sash Wednesday".

    This rather bedraggled handful of aging sillies will therefore not be promoted as the tsunami of change by a mainstream media which is rarely, if ever, seen outside of the city limits. When is the next nonevent due -- the golden anniversary mass?
