Clueless clerics

I guess it all depends on the meaning of the word "all."

The Catholic Archdiocese of Boston -- the folks who brought you cardinal Bernie "The Pimp" Law, the pedophile priest protector -- has decided the word does not include gay parishioners. And the powers-that-be have ordered cancellation of a Gay Pride Week Mass entitled "All are Welcome."
“I think that’s horrible, just horrible, that they would cancel,’’ said Marianne Duddy-Burke, executive director of DignityUSA, an organization that advocates for participation of gays in the Catholic Church. “What an abuse of authority. I wish I could be surprised, but I’m definitely appalled.’’
The church certainly has an identity problem here. The Catholic League recently took out full-page ads in The New York Times that John Carroll ably summarized as declaring:
"...significant numbers of Catholic priests aren’t pedophiles. Just predators."
Now comes the archdiocese to pull the welcome mat out from under people who still believe in its message in spite of a track record that seems in direct contradiction to what it allegedly teaches.

People who live in glass rectories shouldn't throw stones.
