San Francisco parish drops drag queens from fundraising event

Catholic World News - August 09, 2012

San Francisco’s most notoriously “gay-friendly” Catholic parish has announced that drag queens will not be allowed at a fundraising event this year for the first time.

The policy change for Most Holy Redeemer parish comes shortly after the appointment of Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, and could mark a shift in the attitude that archdiocesan leaders will bring to bear on the parish. Drag queens had regularly participated in the fundraising event in previous years.

    It may be too much to hope for, but perhaps the influence of an Archbishop named Salvatore ("Salvation") Cordileone ("heart of a lion") may help the outriders understand about obedience to the True Faith.
