Dignity not Dignified

Fr. Malloy has posted before about "Dignity USA," a group founded in 1969 that "advocates for change in the Catholic Church's teaching on homosexuality." We've heard this before, but what does it mean concretely when put into practice?

For a good example, check out what "Dignity" refers to as one of its ongoing projects, a S/M group called "The Defenders" , "Dignity's outreach to the Leather (read S/M) community."

Their website says: "Defenders/SF is a Leather/Levi club, chartered by Dignity, the national gay Catholic organization. Defenders take a stand for the sacredness of our leather sexuality and explores practical ways of integrating sexuality and spirituality . . . " And what does that mean, concretely? Well, here's an example of "the sacredness of leather sexuality."
