HuffPo‘s spittle-flecked nutty about Card. George of Chicago. His Eminence made an on-camera remark about the homosexual-activist movement possibly morphing into something like the KKK.
Cardinal George: Chicago Gay Pride Parade, LGBT Movement Could ‘Morph Into Ku Klux Klan’
Cardinal Francis George, the Archbishop of Chicago, this week told a Chicago news station that he agreed with a local Roman Catholic church’s objections to the city’s recently-adjusted Gay Pride Parade route passing by its doors and warned that the parade could “morph into the Ku Klux Klan.” [KKK=Intolerant bigots who use violence and intimidation to get their way. You don’t think there might be any negativity expressed by the paraders toward anything Catholic, do you?]
George made the comment Sunday on Fox Chicago when asked about Our Lady of Mount Carmel’s complaints that the parade passing by its Belmont Avenue location would force the church to cancel its morning mass. The church recently launched a petition urging the city to force parade organizers to adjust their plans.
“I go with the pastor,” George told Fox. “He’s telling us that he won’t be able to have services on Sunday if that’s the case. You don’t want the gay liberation movement to morph into something like the Ku Klux Klan, demonstrating in the streets against Catholicism.” [Do I hear an “Amen!”?]
(Scroll down to watch video of Cardinal George’s comment.)
When the Fox host pointed out that George’s comparison was “a little strong,” [OOOOO! A man of the cloth used strong words! OOOOO!] the cardinal stood by his statement.
“It is, but you take a look at the rhetoric,” he continued. “The rhetoric of the Ku Klux Klan, the rhetoric of some of the gay liberation people. Who is the enemy? Who is the enemy? The Catholic Church.”
The cardinal’s comments came a matter of days before the Gay Pride Parade organizers announced Wednesday that the pride start time, originally pushed back to 10 a.m. in an effort to curb public drinking, overcrowding and other safety hazards, [What could possibly go wrong?] would revert back to noon in order to stay clear of the church’s Sunday mass, according to the Windy City Times.
LGBT Catholic group the Rainbow Sash Movement criticized Cardinal George as promoting a “doubled standard” in pushing for the parade to start later.
“One only has the look at the Chicago Marathon, and negative impact that race has on parishes such as Assumption Parish, St. Joseph’s Parish, Immaculate Conception Parish and St. Michael’s Parish just to name a few,” the statement read, as reported by the Windy City Times. [What a dopey notion. The Marathon and the Unnatural Parade are moral equivalents? It is to laugh.]
