Last year after the sex toy bingo at Most Holy Redeemer hit the news Fr. Meriweather was said to be placed "on leave" by the archdiocese. This bingo being held in the parish hall was also run by The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. After all the hoopla died down Fr. Meriweather returned to the parish. Earlier this year the BBC broadcast what turned out to be prayer service (or in reality a homosexual pep rally) at MHR by Fr. Donal Godfrey, S.J. who said about homosexuality" It's simply another gift from God who created us as rainbow people." Every year MHR has maintained a presence at the areas gay pride events and the parish web site has shown pictures such as men kissing.
This parish NEEDS TO BE PUT UNDER THE INTERDICT. Total ban on all the sacraments until it straightens out. Period.

How does a 2 member organization make a ‘press release’? It’s not even an official organization! Were you or I to do that, the press would not take us seriously. The media is equally culpable in keeping the pot stirred.

I agree completely. It's not like interdict has been removed from the list of canonical penalties or anything. Canon 1374 seems to apply to the situation, prescribing an interdict for promoting or directing an association that seeks to plot against the Church.
I remember reading the St. Pius X put a whole town under interdict simply for treating its bishop with insult. How much more deserving of interdict is this parish? It probably ought to be razed to the ground and the whole site exorcized.
sounds good to me. shouldn’t bother them either, since they are clearly embarassed by the Catholic faith and went ahead and made up their own.
