But shame is worthy of Mass

Friend and neighbor J-Mac reads the Globe:

The Catholic Archdiocese of Boston, in response to criticism it was sanctioning a celebration of Gay Pride month, announced yesterday that it had ordered a South End church to cancel a Mass scheduled for next weekend that was themed, “All are Welcome.”

The church is St. Cecilia’s, where this pinko Jew lesbian agnostic feels welcomed and loved.

Carol McKinley, another local conservative Catholic blogger, said she supported the archdiocese’s decision. “Pride is one of the cardinal sins in the Catholic Church,” she said. “It’s the opposite of humility.”

She said that just as she does not celebrate her heterosexuality at Mass, gays and lesbians should not have that option.

As the executive director of Dignity USA says in the article, “I wish I could be surprised, but I’m definitely appalled.”

UPDATE: This is how Father John responded. Long live Father John!
