The Barney Basilica Attacks: Defiant Liberal Catholics in Minneapolis
When St. Paul was talking about a "light on the hill" this wasn't what he had in mind. Rather, it's the kind of edifice that says something very definitive in an ambiguous way about what the Priests of the Archdiocese have long said about the importance of "sexual orientation". Instead, they tell us that there are other issues that are more pressing, like their heavily subsidized "social justice" ministries.
There were reports of a downtown Basilica in the News. Some people were wondering why the Basilica is "Purple". The last time we'd seen these lights was in the Spring of 2008. The Pastor, perhaps thinking that no one would remember the last time these lights were on, insists that they are glowing on behalf of "Breast Cancer Awareness", hardly a suitable use for a church, but then, Breast Cancer Awareness Month's color is pink, not purple. Purple is a color favored by homosexual activists.
But what of Father Bauer's alleged purpose? What other things do purple lights remind us of? Lucinda Naylor, Pro-Homosexual activist, catechist, Jaqueline of All Trades and former "artist in residence" whose degenerate and disturbing art adorn the walls of this most patrician of buildings?
This is the same parish that has a booth at the Gay Pride Festival in Minneapolis every year for the last 10 years.
The Basilica's Rector will never give a Sermon in condemnation of homosexuality, but he needs to. There are so many places he could be a pastor, why must he insist on maintaining this hypocrisy? Instead, he will continue as a termite, destroying the doctrinal beams and walls that support the Church.
Photos from the Spring of 2008 the last time the Basilica staff under the leadership of its Rector decided to gay things up a bit.
