BBC To Broadcast Gay Mass From San Francisco

The BBC is to relay a 'gay Mass' from San Francisco this Sunday, the first time such a service has been broadcast. The 50-minute Mass at the Most Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in the predominantly gay Castro district of the city will feature prayers and readings tailored for the gay community.

Its parish priest, Father Stephen Meriweather, blesses participants in the San Francisco's annual gay pride march. But it has also infuriated many Catholics in the U.S. who have complained about such activities as transvestite bingo nights during which sex toys and pornographic DVDs were handed out as prizes.

Weeks after the BBC finished recording the service last October, it emerged that a transvestite group calling themselves the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence regularly staged lewd and irreverent bingo nights on the church premises.

The San Francisco archdiocese-stopped the events when it was discovered that prizes of a sexual nature were being handed out by the group, who dress as nuns. In the past members of the group have paraded naked through the city advertising a 'hunky Jesus' contest. Their motto is: 'Go and sin some more.'

But we haven't heard a peep out of the SF archdiocese protesting the broadcast of this by the BBC, have we?

That is not a bit surprising.

Well, folks, even though it's a bit tepidly stated, the archdiocese did protest:

Well, of course. Did you expect anything more from a guy who can't tell whether Nancy Pelosi is pro-abortion or not?

And they want rights like "NORMAL" people. Nothing else to say, but Sodom & Gomorah. The ugly Beast and his cohorts are for sure walking this earth.

I would just like to share this article with you:

I agree that the service sounds wrong headed but 'fighting' homosexuality or offering admonishment from a christian perspective should be done by joining groups like Courage.
