Kudos from Rainbow Sash Movement [for Abp Niederauer]

Radical homosexual group ‘encouraged’ by archbishop’s inaction at Most Holy Redeemer

The Rainbow Sash Movement, a homosexual-rights group known for disrupting Masses across the world on Pentecost Sundays, says San Francisco Archbishop George Niederauer’s failure to police activities at the notoriously ‘gay-friendly’ Most Holy Redeemer parish “should be applauded.”

In a Nov. 22 news release -- the same day California Catholic Daily published a story about the scheduled appearance of retired Episcopal Bishop Otis Charles at Most Holy Redeemer -- Rainbow Sash said it “wishes to congratulate the people and pastor” of the parish for inviting Bishop Charles, noting he had publicly announced his homosexuality and “had a blessed union service performed to bless his relationship with his lover in 2004.”

“The Rainbow Sash Movement is encouraged by Archbishop Niederauer’s lack of action on this matter, and believes he is taking a role in responding to the rampant homophobia that is alive and well in the Church,” said the news release.

The Rainbow Sash Movement is best known for disrupting Masses on Pentecost Sundays by having its members wear “gay colors” while presenting themselves for Communion. In 2004, Cardinal Francis George, Archbishop of Chicago, instructed priests of the archdiocese to refuse Communion to wearers of the rainbow sash. "The policy of the U.S. Conference of Bishops is to not give Communion to those wearing the Rainbow Sash," said the cardinal in his written instruction to archdiocesan priests.

A Jan. 15, 2005 letter written on his behalf by the secretary of Cardinal Francis Arinze, then prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, noted: "Rainbow Sash wearers are showing their opposition to Church teaching on a major issue of natural law and so disqualify themselves from being given Holy Communion."

In the meantime, Most Holy Redeemer continues.........

I’m afraid to ask what kind of ‘activities’ the guy is failing to police which have earned such a positive reaction from the ‘Rainbow Sash’ people...

This needs reporting to the Vatican preferably by Archbishops Caput or Burke. We cannot allow perverts (”the smoke of Satan”) to invade the sanctuary.

Niederauer’s handling of Nancy Pelosi is scandalous.

Same archbishop.

“In 2008, Archbishop Niederauer campaigned in favor of California’s Proposition 8, a ballot measure to recognize heterosexual marriage as the only valid marriage within California”.

Sounds to me like he’s lost his mind.
