Now we knew this was coming, didn't we? See below what currently appears in the url http://blog.adw.org/2014/09/what-happened-to-the-st-patricks-parade-post/
My word! How stupid does the Archdiocese of Washington think we are? I've no doubt that this "apology" was coerced and the language for this may well have been dictated by the chancery. Remember - this is the very same chancery that gave Father Marcel Guarnizo the heave-ho when the latter denied Holy Communion to a flagrantly practicing lesbian (as was his duty per Canon 915).
Msgr Pope's language in his now-censored post was strong, but such language was needed to adequately describe the depravity of Cardinal Dolan's kiss-up to the gays regarding what now will be the St Patrick's Day Orgy. No doubt the unabashed truth stings the consciences of all progressives in all chanceries. They will circle the wagons to protect their own from the light of the truth.
Msgr Pope is vowed to obedience to the local bishop. Most likely he had no choice but to allow that poppy-cock apology to be published on his behalf. We the laity are not so constrained, and we will call out this chicanery for what it is.
To the ADW trolls reading this post - no, we had no communications with Msgr Pope, so if your noses are out of joint because of this post, it will avail you nothing to vent your spleens at Msgr Pope. My com-boxes are open.
