This past Tuesday I alerted my readers to the public disregard of Church teaching on homosexuality by the pastor of St John Vianney Church in Prince Frederick MD. That post elicited quite a few comments, some of them with additional information regarding other problems. I particularly want to thank the anonymous commenter of 7/5, 9:52PM. He/she put forth a number of websites, including this one: http://pamshouseblend.firedoglake.com/2009/10/30/proequality-clergy-greatly-outnumber-the-antigay-variety-in-washington-dc/
Granted it is a liberal site, but I've no reason to doubt its accuracy as to its main subject matter: the so-called "Declaration of Religious Support for Marriage Equality". The names of the signers are arranged alphabetically. Signing this document is Msgr Jameson, rector of the Cathedral of St Matthew the Apostle. Consider that this cathedral is the seat of the Archbishop of Washington: that is, Cardinal Wuerl.
How much more of this pestilence will make its stench known? To be honest, if it exists we need to know about it so let it come to light. When it does, though, will the Cardinal move to eradicate the mess? Both of these priests exercise pastoral ministries at present. Let us pray that corrective action is undertaken immediately to mitigate any future spiritual damage.
