New York parish shrine honors Father Mychal Judge as 'gay saint'
August 11, 2011
A parish in Syracuse, New York is inaugurating a memorial to Father Mychal Judge, a New York priest who was killed in the bombing of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
Father Judge, who served as a chaplain to New York firefighters, was reportedly homosexual, and has been embraced as a hero by gay-rights activists within the Church.
Father Fred Daley, the pastor of All Saints church in Syracuse, describes himself as a celibate homosexual and has won endorsement from his parishioners of a policy welcoming homosexuals. He said that the life of Father Judge provides a special model for his community.

"A special model"? Judge's partner in perversion received his survivor benefits in a big hype by Bloomberg. Disgusting beyond all hope.

It always comes down to the same fallacy: so-and-so had homosexual leanings; so-and-so has done some virtuous things; therefore homosexual conduct is good.
