Gay activists play major role in Boston parish
June 27, 2011
The Boston Globe provides a glimpse of active role that gay activists play in St. Cecilia’s parish, where a Mass celebrating Gay Pride was recently scheduled, postponed on orders from the Boston archdiocese, and then rescheduled.
The gay parishioners tell the Globe of their profound disagreements with the teachings on human sexuality put forth by the Vatican. Apparently they are more comfortable at St. Cecilia’s—where, the sympathetic Globe reports, they have “managed to stay in the flock by separating Vatican pronouncements they find hurtful from the Catholic communities they see on Sunday.”

Savanorola asks "Another bishop wimps out?". But he already did. Recall the Kennedy funeral festivities.

It is interesting to note that no where in the Globe article is there any mention of man's eternal destiny and that the mission of the Church is to help men and women reach it. If the Church wanted to make friends with the world, especially with the media, like so many American Protestant denominations it would embrace the latest and most popular fashions. The Church, however, is entrusted by Christ with the duty of proclaiming the truth for the salvation of souls difficult as that may be.

Isn't that Protestantism, "take what you like and leave the rest"?

Unbelievable! Where on earth, is the authority of the Cardinal Archbishop of Boston?
