Catholic schools back out of parade to make a statement

A bigoted statement, of course.

http://wavy.com/2015/03/10/catholic-schools-back-out-of-parade-to-make-a-statement/

Governor Terry McAuliffe was named grand marshal of the Norfolk Saint Patrick’s Day Parade. He is a catholic, but takes a pro-choice stance on abortion and has performed two marriages for same-sex couples.

Father Beeman is so outraged about McAuliffe leading the parade that he wrote a letter to his parishioners and other churches, saying Holy Trinity would not participate in the parade. In the letter, Beeman wrote the following:

(McAuliffe) himself promised to be a ‘brick wall’ against restrictions on abortion, has taken away common sense protections for women in abortion facilities and lowered safety standards, and consistently takes money from pro-abortion lobbying groups.

Further, (McAuliffe) not only favors the re-definition of marriage, he himself performed a gay “marriage” as soon as a court overturned the law of the Commonwealth … it is dumbfounding how the Knights (of Columbus) could then decide to honor the Governor.


Kudos to the KoC at least!

1. That's odd, about the Knights of Columbus. They're usually pretty politically active in right-wing

anti-human causes.

I wonder if there's a little bit of change afoot.

3. Apparently they didn't get the memo

 

from Francis the Great requiring all Catholic church representatives to stop being bigoted assholes.

Oh...wait...
