I'll add my voice to the others in stressing that SPI is not a small (or local) organization. They're international. I encourage all to take a look at their website (http://www.thesisters.org/) and to decide for themselves if this is any sort of "overreaction." In truth, this is a serious and long-term effort by some to undermine the immutable teachings of the Christian faith regarding human sexuality. Since the group's inception, the Catholic Church has been the main target of their lampooning and perverted distortions in costume, action and ideology. One of their members is named "Pope Dementia the Last",
for crying out loud! He was a main character in the group's public "Exorcism of Pope John Paul II" in 1999. Their website's "sistory" (get it?) brags that, in 1996 "Sisters attended, for the first time, the annual Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert and served Oh! Communion with medicinal brownies and tequila to parched and needy pagans. They also performed and passed out safer sex materials and set up a prayer shrine." The group also hosts an annual "Hunky Jesus Contest."
The list could go on and on and on... And Catholics aren't supposed to be offended? Here is the bio of "Sister Delta Goodhand," one of the men who received Communion on the 7th from the archbishop. You can read for yourself his views, etc. http://www.thesisters.org/bios/delta.html

("Thou art Peter, and on this rock I will build My Church..." (Mt 16:18))
Those are some horrific pictures.
The more I read about this crowd the more nauseated I become.
Niederauer should have insisted that they either leave the Church or remove their garb, never mind denying them Communion. The bishop of Sodom-by-the-Sea has a huge problem in that city.
