More on St. Francis Xavier New York July 29, 2010

Posted by Tantumblogo in General Catholic, scandals.

St. Francis Xavier parish in NYC, the very gay friendly (gay dominated?) parish that was the subject of a CNN report as well as much coverage elsewhere, was covered in a RealCatholicTV video from a few weeks ago.   In the intervening time, many have contacted the Archdiocese of New York and Archbishop Dolan to let him know how his seeming endorsement of this parish was unacceptable.  Well, the archdiocese has responded to those people.  Was this response a rigorous defense of Catholic doctrine and a call for change at St. Francis Xavier?   You decide:

I think the fact that St. Francis Xavier has no association with COURAGE is the most damning bit of evidence, because COURAGE is the only Catholic group dedicated to help those who have same sex attractions overcome them and lead a life faithful to the doctrine of the Church.  If you recall back to the CNN video, however, the woman from the parish interviewed made it plain to me that she is in an active sexual relationship.  I think the response is deliberately evasive and entirely disappointing.  This is not the kind of leadership we need in the Church, and certainly not from the leader of  a See as influential as that of New York’s.

Bleagh! Sickening to say the least.

On a related note, are any parishes here planning on marching in the Dallas Gay Pride Parade in September? I believe it goes by the title “Alan Ross Texas Freedom Festival and Parade”.

It does not appear so. I looked at the two most likely parishes, and they didn’t say anything about it.

That doesn’t mean it won’t happen.

Voris hit on all the points that make it clear what’s going on here.

Michael (husband) and I were talking about homosexuality last night and how it represents all that is going on in this country.

It’s a TOTAL rejection of the AUTHORITY of God and it’s a usurping of POWER for one’s own purposes. The two events happen simultaneously and it’s the result of individuals (then cultures, then governments) rejecting God’s authority.

So, we basically have a government of homosexuals now. They want all the goodies, but they don’t want to offer God anything back (expect NO fruit from these individuals’ actions). Instead they force everyone else to give something up to make others feel better about them.

On top of that, everyone is supposed to feel guilty for having religious “fixations” that allow them to reject their stupidity (again, applying this to active homosexuals and liberals).

Whatever. The Church, again, is going to pay dearly for turning from God if they don’t correct this. We’re already in process of trying to put the Church back together over homosexual behavior, you’d think that they’d want to pitch in a little in New York. NOPE! The problem is more pervasive (does pervasive come from the same root as pervert?) a problem than first glance would tell you.

a little digression, but Abp. Dolan had been rumored to be papabile… how do you think this will effect his “papability”?

Probably doesn’t do too much to his chances. He’s supposedly in line to get a red hat, if that doesn’t happen in the next 2 years, I’d say it means he’s out of favor. Even if he does get made a Cardinal soon, I don’t think he’ll ever be Pope.

If I were to pray for an American Pope, it would be Archbishop Raymond Burke.
