Very courageously, His Heremeneuticalness has published a scandalous video of “bidding prayers” in a so-called “gay mass”. You find the video here.
If you have the stomach to listen to it, not only you will hear the usual passive-aggressive “oh how I am persecuted” crap, but you will notice the lectern covered with a rainbow cloth. In a sacred place. At Mass.
When you are already wondering whether this is a joke, or some fake staged by right-wing extremists, you’ll see a strange guy dressed in drags, the very epitome of a carnival figure, reading some of the prayers with a desperate attempt to look and sound like a stupid woman, and only succeeding in making a very sad joke of himself.
Of course, we know that such people exist. People not only perverted in their sexual orientation; not only utterly refusing to do anything against it – and be it a daily prayer that they might be freed from their, erm, perversion rather than being proud of it – but even hijacking what is most sacred for the sake of their propaganda. We know these people exist, and we know they will find priests – homosexual themselves, or without any sensible notion of their job and duties – ready to be their accomplices.
What really makes me angry, is that from the very top of the E&W hierarchy, such desecration and perversion of Christianity is tolerated and silently or openly approved. Archbishop Nichols, the man who allows so-called “gay-masses” in the heart of London, has openly expressed his support for “civil partnership” legislation (just use the search function of this blog, and you’ll find more than you wished for). In this country we are at the vigil of the introduction of so-called gay-marriages, a pet of our disgraceful Prime Minister, and his opposition to this has been limited to the murmur of half-disapprobation ex officio which clearly gives to understand he is not contrary at all, he merely must say so.
Archbishop Nichols is the single biggest problem of the Church in E&W today. If we had a Catholic as Archbishop, the fight he would start on these issues would make it impossible for the likes of Cameron to act the liberal and progressive without paying a heavy political price, and at that point even Cameron would get that there’s nothing to be gained. Not so with Archbishop Vincent “Quisling” Nichols, possibly the most shameless accomplice of secular values and betrayer of Catholic truth this country has ever seen. Archbishop Nichols abets perversion every day with his words, with his acts and with his silence. He sells Catholic – nay, elementary Christian – values for the sake of an easy popularity among those who don’t care for the Church; he is every bit as bad – nay, worse still, much worse – than the pitiful pervert in drags you can see in the video: then the pervert may claim ignorance of the very basis of Catholicism and has no responsibility for so many sheep.
Yes, we must pray for the Archbishop. But we must also pray that he be removed, at once.
