Last Sunday, Archbishop George Niederauer of the Diocese of San Francisco gave Communion to two members of the “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” at the mass he was celebrating at Most Holy Redeemer parish. (Story here.)
The “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence”, whose motto is “go and sin some more” and describes itself as a “leading-edge order of queer nuns,” planned to hold regular bingo games at Most Holy Redeemer Parish until Catholic activists reported the plans to the press. A local homosexual newspaper, the San Francisco Bay Times, reported that the events at the parish included sexually explicit activities. Prizes included porn DVDs and “sex toys” the paper said.
A statement by Archbishop Niederauer sent to LifeSiteNews.com by Archdiocesan communications director Maurice Healy says that the Archbishop did not notice any “mock religious garb.”
Well, here are the pictures. Do you notice the mock religious garb?
If he didn’t notice that one of them was dressed as a nun, what did he notice? Regardless of any “mock religious garb,” are these men dressed appropriately for church? Are they demonstrating an appropriate humility when they approach the priest to receive the Body of Christ?
The Archbishop should remember that he was called to be in San Francisco, not of San Francisco.
