The IHTC Fairy Was Busy This Past Pentecost Sunday
Evil fairy dust spill on the interstate... film at 11

CHICAGO, May 24, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The Rainbow Sash Movement (RSM), the group of homosexual activists that self-describes itself as “Catholic” despite its open stance against significant moral teachings of the Church, announced today that they will again be “challenging the Catholic Church's hierarchy” this upcoming Pentecost Sunday, May 27.

In a disturbingly related story;

CHICAGO, May 28, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – DePaul University in Chicago, one of the largest and most important Catholic universities in the US is hosting the second “Out There” conference on homosexuality and Catholic education.

The conference, whose full title is the Conference of Scholars and Student Affairs Personnel Involved in “LGBTQ” (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered and queer) issues on Catholic Campuses, is being organized through the DePaul Women’s and Gender Studies department. It is scheduled for October 19-20, 2007 and is calling for submissions for papers and workshops.

The first Out There conference was held at Jesuit-run Santa Clara University in 2005 in California and attracted 150 students and faculty from 40 different schools, including the Universities of Georgetown, Loyola Marymount, Gonzaga, Fordham, DePaul, La Salle, Marquette and Emory, as well as Boston College, and College of the Holy Cross. The Santa Clara conference was praised by gay activists as opening a new door between the homosexual activist community and the world of Catholic education.

Defending the decision to hold the 2005 conference, Santa Clara University told Catholic News Agency that hosting a two-day long conference “on how to promote opportunities for gays and lesbians at Catholic colleges is the Catholic way to act.” The 2005 conference chose not to highlight Catholic teaching on the intrinsic immorality or medical dangers of homosexual activity or offer assistance to homosexuals to leave their lifestyle.

It hasn't been indicated from DePaul University if they too will "choose not to highlight Catholic teaching" as Santa Clara did, but keep in mind the following;

DePaul includes a minor undergraduate programme in “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered and queer (LGBTQ) studies.” Course work includes courses in “Sexual Justice: Lesbians, Gays and the Law,” and “Creating Change: GLBT Politics”.

And Archbishop Lefevbre was "excommunicated" for what again?

Of course, the pious, godly, saintly Cardinal George will take no notice of this fine Catholic event in his diocese.

Unless, of course, he appears to deliver the keynote address.

Would someone please point this out to Gerald at the so-called "Closed Cafeteria" blog? Seriously Cavey he really needs a Caveman beat down. Not even this token Odox Caveman here can get through to him.

The "fairy" picture is horrifying! "Remember Tara, remember Tara, remember Tara, all men have human dignity--made in the image and likeness of God." Oh my, how far man has fallen.

Remember, he wasn't actually excommunicated until he ordained some unauthorized bishops. Given that they have "authorized" bishops in their corner, I doubbt if this group has to worry (until they try to get a gay female bishop).

On the other hand, if you keep putting up those XXX rated pictures, I may have to petition Rome to grant a special plenary indulgence for anyone who can look at your blog without passing out from shock.

Y'know ... I detest the Rainbow Sashers as much as anyone. But I really do not see the point in putting up that picture.

Not on "don't give me impure thoughts sense" (duh ... and I have a pretty ribald sense of humor myself as well).

But would the parade be any less bad if he were more sexually alluring or could fit his tutu completely over his rear end? Or is the point just calling a man, and by extension the group he's with, "fat and ugly"?

"...challenging the Catholic Church's hierarchy"

Isn't that what caused all the trouble with Martin Luther?

Why, oh why, couldn't they simply nail a document to a door and leave the white spandex out of it?
