I’ve been trying to follow the Cardinal Dolan/St. Patrick’s Day Parade/Homosexual pride group participation issue. All the discussions on the Catholic Answers forums close quickly. Is there a rule on these forums prohibiting controversial issues or issues that may criticize those in the hierarchy?
I’ve noticed the trend over the few years I’ve been on here but it may just be paranoia on my part.
For my part I think His Eminence should recuse himself from any participation, including offering a “kick off” Mass for the parade. There have been, no doubt, homosexual participants in the parade for the last 270 years but no group parading to advance an active sinful life style. I fail to understand why His Eminence chooses to participate. When Cardinal Dolan and I were kids, under the tutelage of Sisters, we were taught such things were the sin of scandal. I listened.
