Catholic Parishioners Burn Rainbow Flag In 'Exorcism' Ceremony

<< < (2/5) > >>

I'm feeling sick! I am denouncing Catholicism. I can't believe they have the nerve to do such a heinous thing, especially after so many have been in the news for child molestation and other lewd sexual acts.

It has everything to do with the fact that these are Catholic parishioners who burned the flag due to their religious beliefs, not some random citizens who burned a flag for the hell of it.

1.  Exorcism is, historically, a Roman Catholic ritual reserved for casting out demons.
2. These are Roman Catholic parishioners who attend the Resurrection Catholic in Chicago who took down a flag that was hanging in THEIR church for years harming no one.
3. It was led by a parish priest, Rev. Paul Kalchik, a Roman Catholic priest at Resurrection Parish who "JUST HAPPENS" to be  a parish priest!*
4. The event was advertised in the parish church bulletin.
5. Discrimination against LGBT Catholics is a real problem and it exists to this day and is perpetuated by powerful forces WITHIN the Church.

*Who stated, in writing:

“On Saturday, September 29, the Feast of Saint Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, we will burn, in front of the church, the rainbow flag that was unfortunately hanging in our sanctuary during the ceremonial first Mass as Resurrection parish”

AGAIN:  That was written by a parish priest!

A footnote on his announcement stated, “US Church homosexual scandal is a sequel to the story of Sodom and Gomorrah.”

Imagine how it must have galled him. Having to look at that evil symbol of diversity and inclusion and acceptance, a truly catholic(lower case c) symbol, EVERY day as he passed by to offer his prayers to The Almighty. 

And they wonder why, more and more people are rejecting the church. This is not something Jesus taught. In fact the complete opposite.
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
What about this do they not understand?
Next thing you know they will be taking down the sign. "All are welcome"
