Catholic Priest Forbids Gay Man from Singing at His Grandmother’s Funeral

“Connor Hakes, a 23-year-old from Indiana, was not permitted to sing at his grandmother’s funeral after the pastor presiding over the service saw a photo of Hakes attending a gay Pride rally.” — https://www.buzzfeed.com/skarlan/a-gay-man-was-not-permitted-to-sing-at-his-grandmothers-fune?utm_term=.tebMmLe15#.br90ylv2g

The priest wrote this in a letter: “Anytime someone sins and then acts in the name of God, it causes scandal. This is the main reason why you cannot (at this time) offer your gifts in service at St. Mary’s,”

So… the catholic church has long protected and enabled child rapists in its ranks. And that’s not sinning then acting in the name of God?!

But of course, hypocrisy is a mainstay of the church. Do what I tell you not what I do. See how wonderful the catholic god’s love is?

    All excellent points in an excellent blog! Religious bigotry makes people into monsters.
    Just thought I would drop off this art I found on Imgur. Apparently the artist has not been able to find coverage for the piece but has shared it for educational purposes.
