Further making a sash of themselves
The Rainbow Sash Movement wishes to congratulate Cardinal Wuerl of the Archdiocese of Washington for siding with common sense and reason by allowing “Catholics for Equality” a newly formed Washington DC based Gay Catholic political organization, sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign Fund to host an event to be held at Georgetown University Intercultural Center Auditorium University Wednesday, December 8, 2010 8:30 – 10:00 PM
This story has the slight problem of being a total lie. The Cardinal did not such thing and they know it.This is the response from the Archdiocesan director of Communications:
“Yes. We were in touch with Georgetown. The group Catholics for Equality has been told by GU it may not sponsor or hold events there. An adjunct faculty member at GU, Rev. Joe Palacios, is the leader of the gay marriage group (he is very involved with Human Rights Campaign). He is on some panel the GU Dems and GU GOP are sponsoring. He is a priest of LA. He does not have faculties in the Archdiocese of Washington. In short Rainbow Sash put out a wholesale lie apparently trying to get attention. Thanks for the heads up. Please feel free to let those you know are concerned the information is completely false.” [source]
via Further making a sash of themselves — The Curt Jester. The sad thing here is that people resort to all sorts of lies just to garner some attention for something they already know to be a moral ill. This actions of groups like this remind me of the negative side of peer pressure where a group of people headed in the wrong direction feel the sting of loneliness that comes along with living poorly and thus seek to condemn as many persons as they can along with them in an effort to keep from being alone. Yet alone they will always remain. Without Our Blessed Lord we cannot truly love without Him for, “We love, because he first loved us” (1 John 4:19). True love of one another requires honesty with charity. We must remain honest with God and man because one can only find caritas in veritate.
