It appears that our Archbishop, His Excellency George Niederauer, has asked MHR not to march in this year's "Gay Pride Parade." As far as we know, he is the first Archbishop of the Archdiocese of San Francisco to have done this, and we wholeheartedly thank him.
From "Lifesite News:
"SAN FRANCISCO, June 11, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The San Francisco Catholic parish that gave the homosexual movement its rainbow flag will have a new surprise in store at the upcoming annual gay pride weekend in San Francisco: they are not coming.
The San Francisco Catholic Archdiocese has asked Most Holy Redeemer Parish in the Castro district not to participate this year and the parish has so far agreed.
LifeSiteNews contacted the archdiocese after it was reported Tuesday by the California Catholic Daily that Most Holy Redeemer parish would once again participate in San Francisco's Pride Weekend - an event featuring sundry displays of obscenity, replete with floats and marchers celebrating all sorts of alternative sexual lifestyles from same-sex "marriage" to bisexuality to polyamory."
Readers of "A Shepherd's Voice" know that we have objected over and over again to some of the activities at Most Holy Redeemer. To read our posts about MHR, please click on the "Homosexual Agenda" label at the bottom of this entry. For a fuller examination of some of the objectionable activities at MHR, go here.
We completely support our shepherd, Archbishop Niederauer in his action. We continue to pray for him, and for our brothers and sisters in Christ at MHR. May they also pray for us!
