the archbishop responds

By Diogenes (articles) | Oct 11, 2007

LifeSite is in receipt of a statement from San Francisco Archbishop George Niederauer explaining his having given communion to a pair of drag queens belonging to an anti-Catholic agit-prop group calling itself the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence:

At Most Holy Redeemer Church Oct. 7, I noticed no protest, no demonstration, no disruption of the Sunday Eucharist. The congregation was devout and the liturgy was celebrated with reverence. Toward the end of the Communion line two strangely dressed persons came to receive Communion. I did not see any mock religious garb. As I recall, one of them wore a large flowered hat or garland."

The congregation was devout.

I did not see any mock religious garb.

We all understand the situation better now, Archbishop. Thank you for your candor.
