Canadian Cowardice

Here's some of this rather disgusting article from Catholic Culture;
Canada: Reconciliation between diocese, gay altar server as bishop preaches tolerance
Less than a month after a mediation session at the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal resulted in a confidential settlement, Bishop Nicola de Angelis of Peterborough traveled to a Cobourg parish to preach that “nobody has the right to humiliate or slander their brother and sister.”

“Great in society is the one who is capable to respect the dignity of each person regardless of our differences in language,” he said. “Regardless of the color of our skin … regardless of our sex or sexual orientation.”

In 2009, altar server James Corcoran had been removed from his position as altar server at the bishop’s direction after 12 parishioners wrote letters complaining of his appointment. Mr. Corcoran says he is a celibate homosexual man who has lived with a same-sex partner for 20 years. Following his removal, Mr. Corcoran filed a complaint with the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal, alleging illegal discrimination.

Mr. Corcoran was present at the bishop's Mass, as were the 12 parishioners.

"Tolerance" my ass. He preached acceptance.

Perhaps I am ignorant, but " celibate homosexual man who has lived with a same-sex partner for 20 years" seems contradictory.

Well, when this "altar server" rapes an altar boy, I wonder if the bishop will be "tolerant" then?

Chamberlain tolerance it seems. (This is also know as surrender.)

The mistake here was the priest telling the man that he could be an altar server. The issue is that the parishoners still want the priest removed from the current church and I concur. the priest made an epic mistake in judgement.
Secondly celibate homosexual is all ok, but obedience is more important, clearly the celibate homo lacks obedience. I do not trust him at all.
