Archbishop apologizes for giving Communion to Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence
And what a great article too! PZ would love this group.
On Oct. 7, Archbishop George Niederauer delivered the Eucharist to members of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence – an activist group whose motto is “go forth and sin some more” – prompting cries of outrage from conservatives across the country and Catholics in San Francisco.
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, founded in San Francisco in 1979, are known for their white face paint, outrageous costumes, theatrics and support of the gay community. They adopt names such as Sister Chastity Boner and Sister Constance Craving of the Holey Desire and have mottos such as, “It is not wise to say no to free drinks, cheap jewelry, discount cosmetics or pretty boys.”
It’s also great to see all the shock and horror for what is, in the end, the accidental deliverance of a holy cracker.
Conservative Fox news commentator Bill O’Reilly, who has disparaged “San Francisco values,” called the latest flap another example of how the city is run by “far-left secular progressives who despise the military, traditional values and religion.”
On his Friday news show, O’Reilly called San Francisco “a disgrace on every level.”
You’d think Bill would be down with San Fran, but then, it’s quite likely he’s desperately repressing his urge to be violated with a falafel, whatever. Let’s hope the sisters open up a chapter in every state!
