Somewhere over the rainbow...

Tomorrow is the Solemnity of the Pentecost, the birthday of Mother Church. In cathedrals across the land, gay activists intend to use the blessed occasion, to call undue attention to how they spend their free time, by wearing rainbow sashes. Presumedly, they will attempt to receive Communion while so doing. They won't get far in Arlington, Virginia.

I am the designated lay reader for the 11am Mass tomorrow, when the Bishop usually presides. Should this turn out to be the case, it will be my first such exercise in the presence of His Excellency. If any of these clowns have any funny ideas, they'd better take them somewhere else if they know what's good for them. It's bad enough they have to parade around like the rest of us care about their damn fool nonsense.

But making me look bad? That, and dissin' Mama -- well, y'all be walkin' on the fightin' side of me.

Consider yourselves warned, boys.

They won't get far in Providence either, especially now with Bishop Tobin here. In fact, he just wrote a pamphlet on "Protecting the Sacrament of Marriage". We have copies at the church I serve as music director.

I look at that picture and can't help but wonder if that young man, in the light blue shirt, is uncomfortable with what he's doing.

So, how did it go, today, Mr. Alexander?
Any funny business?

Rhonda: He's probably standing there thinking, "My boyfriend made me wear this ridiculous..."

There seems to be a shortage of beribboned women in that picture.
