Orthodox Priest Cleanses His City's Downtown with Holy Water After LGBT Parade


#1

I put this in Catholic news. But sadly it isn’t. It should be Catholic news. Why don’t we do more to challenge the culture?


#2

Perhaps because as recent events suggest, the culture is pervasive within the Church herself? When a conservative archbishop and cardinal like O’Brien comes out and admits having sexual relationships with seminarians… hello Houston, we have a problem :confused:

Perhaps the good priest should come sprinkle holy water on our Church’s hierarchy…


#3

After? Why not during?


#4

It should be.
A good first step might be for righteous bishops to deal aggressively with parishes that enthusiastically support these unholy displays.


#5

How would you suggest that gay pride parades be challenged? We live in a democracy that guarantees freedom of speech and freedom of assembly.


#6

The Church should speak out against the events and instruct Catholics that it is wrong to participate in any way.

As for democracy, that is part of the problem.
