Okay, now the gloves come off

Now I'm fucking pissed. This is my home archdiocese, and it is completely unacceptable to pull this fucking shit there.

I can't buy the claim that it's inappropriate for parishoners to express their political beliefs, or their ecumenical disagreements, during mass. If you can express one from the pulpit, you'd better accept one from the congregation. If the church is as good and benevolent as it likes to claim, it is obligated to hold the moral high ground and not be swayed by such disagreements. Stay the course, engage the membership in discussion, keep trying to persuade them to abandon the "error" of their way if you wish. Turning it into a confrontation by refusing them a sacrament, that's just petty bullshit.
