Abomination in a holy place

The May 12 issue of the Archdiocesan newspaper, The Tidings, carries an article (click on this post's title) subtitled, "Lesbian and gay ministry celebrates 20th anniversary in archdiocese."

The story reports on a Mass at Blessed Sacrament Church in Hollywood on Saturday, May 7, that celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles's Ministry with Lesbian and Gay Catholics. Then-Archbishop Roger Mahony founded the group in February 1986.

The article says two priests and "nearly a dozen other priests" concelebrated the Mass; a letter from Cardinal Mahony was read; "[t]he liturgy began with dancers"; and the choir and congregation sang "a rousing 'Somos El Cuerpo de Cristo' ('We Are the Body of Christ')."

That is not all. The Tidings report continues, "Members of the entrance procession placed rainbow[-]colored banners behind the altar."

That is an abomination. Rainbow banners, sashes, stickers, etc., are universally known to be a symbol of avowed, active, unrepentant homosexuals -- as anything but a symbol of repentance and Confession, penance and purity, reparation and amendment of life.

So rainbow banners in the sanctuary during Mass are fine with the Archdiocese -- but remember last June, when the ushers at Cardinal Mahony's Yellow Armadillo (a.k.a. cathedral) wanted the LAPD to ARREST pro-life t-shirt-wearing young people for trying to attend the Cardinal's "interfaith service" for the inauguration of pro-abortion Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.

'Nuff said.

Everything is supposed to behind the altar in LA, except tabernacles... laypeople, political symbols, dancers...

Now that I think about it, moving the tabernacle out of the madhouse may have been an act of respect for the Eucharist.

We the Faithful Members of the "Church Militant" cannot and should not wait for Pope Benedict to act. We must rise up in defense of the true Faith as did our forefathers.
