MHR: Outrage is not "Overblown", it's Overdue.

Given what goes on regularly at Most Holy Redeemer parish, one can understand Fr. Steven Meriwether's complaint that the outrage over Archbishop Niederauer giving communion to the two SPI's as "overblown."

After all, as has reported: Just a week before the Archbishop's visit, the parish had hosted a drag queen beauty pageant, with no objection from the Archdiocese.

And on June 24, MHR made its annual appearance at the Gay Pride parade, with no objection from the Archdiocese.

And on April 29, MHR hosted a "Gay Service" broadcast worldwide on the BBC, with no objection from the Archdiocese.

And on February 17, MHR hosted "Awards Night" for the "Inter-Club Fund" a leather (read S/M) motorcycle club, who are big fans of that foretaste of hell, the Folsom Street Fair, with no objection from the Archdiocese.

And on Jaunary 27, the members of the MHR Young Adult Group were presented as debutantes at the "SF Transgender Cotillion" with no objection from the Archdiocese.

And this was just in 2007!

Yes, given the tolerance of these activities, it's no wonder Fr. Meriwther is surprised that a little thing like giving the Holy Eucharistic to church-mocking transvestites might be considered out-of-bounds. Apparently, nobody ever told him there were any bounds.

How about excommunication for all the priests and religious who spend (sic) their time bemoaning and blogging instead of praying, evangelizing, and ministering?

Too, what is the obsession with homosexuality consistently addressed in this blog? Do we really believe that addressing the liturgical aberrations at MHR will resolve issues of world hunger, global poverty, international trafficking, and social sin? The myopic view of this blog is very disappointing and leads me to believe only that humanity has become very parochial and quite selfish. Not so, not so! Ad gentes!
