This week, that lack of tangible love is being felt by Nicholas Coppola, a gay Catholic living in Long Island, New York who was incredibly active in his parish. After marrying his husband legally, he was informed that he could no longer serve as a lector, visitation minister, food pantry volunteer, capital campaign board member or catechist. He is allowed to enter the church, but his involvement, which was significant, has been curtailed. This is all because someone sent an anonymous letter to the bishop, who then directed the parish to remove him.
This astonishing piece of faggoty ranting appeared on the Washington Post, who have dedicated a piece to explain to us that Cardinal Dolan does not “love” what they call “the LGBT people” (it means faggots, lesbians, and other perverts).
The astonished reader learns from this that there are in the diocese of New York people who must necessarily be self-confessing sodomites, and are allowed to have a “significant” involvement as (it is inferred) lector, visitation minister, food pantry volunteer, capital campaign board member and/or catechist.
More astonishingly still, it appears this unbelievable… gal even dared to stage a mickey mouse “marriage”, and still nothing happened. In order for this walking scandal to be removed from his “involvement” it was necessary that some good Catholic wrote to the Cardinal saying “wake up, nincompoops”, and then something finally happened.
The Washington Post shows, as it is to be expected from such a perverted rag, that they have no clue whatsoever about what Catholicism stays for. But this does not mean the Cardinal isn't to be blamed, either.
With his woolly words about how he “loves” the “gays” and his trying to explain that the Church “gotta listen to people”, this cartoon Cardinal has put himself into a corner. He doesn't satisfy honest Catholics, because Catholicism requires the Truth to be said whole, and the dangers of hell for perverts to be expressed loud and clear; and he doesn't satisfy perverts, because by all his oily talk he is just not in a position to deliver what they want, that is: the “celebration” of their perversion.
Therefore, the Cartoon Cardinal will continue to be despised by Catholics for his betrayal of Catholic values and his refusal to properly teach the Faith, and he will continue to be despised by perverts as he is rightly seen by them as a boot-licking hypocrite.
Unfortunately, the Cartoon Cardinal will also continue to be seen from the worldwide clergy as the type of “pastoral” archbishop they think the world need, thus placing him in a very good position – unless sanity prevails, for which there isn't much hope at the moment – to be one day our next Pontiff, Pope Mickey Mouse I.
Therefore, do not expect that he stops his policy anytime soon.
