Catholic Reverend Given Standing O-gay-tion by Parish for Refusing to Condemn Gays
The parish became the sixth in Seattle to opt out of the petition drive for Referendum 74 that has been endorsed and foisted on parishes by Archbishop J. Peter Sartain.
“I am happy to report that Our Lady of the Lake parish-oners have been overwhelmingly and, thus far, unanimously supportive of the decision I made NOT to gather signatures in support of this Referendum,” Clark wrote in response to an e-mail.
“The standing ovation experienced during one of the Masses says less about me and much more about the health of this parish. I only wished the archbishop could have experienced the sustained applause — the ‘sensus fidelium’ — of the people. He needs to listen to this ‘voice.’ That is my prayer.”
How ’bout a round of applause? A standing o-gay-tion…Mmm…
Don’t let the fact that you weren’t in the room when Rev. Clark drew his line in the sand and defied the Vatican prevent you from giving your own standing ovation.
