The Sash-O-Shame

Archbishop Flynn makes another appearance on this Blog!!!

You gotta love this guy. A real leader. A real foward-thinker in the Church. Check out his weekly column.

Now, check out this article from about parishoners wearing rainbow sashes in support of the Catholic GLBT community being refused communion.

A group called the Rainbow Sash Alliance has encouraged supporters to wear the multicolored fabric bands since 2001 on each Pentecost Sunday, the day Catholics believe the Holy Spirit came to give power to Christians soon after Jesus ascended to heaven. But Sunday's service was the first time they had been denied communion at the altar.

Archbishop Harry Flynn told the group earlier this month that they would not receive communion because the sashes had become a protest against church teaching. . . .

Last year, some conservative groups in St. Paul kneeled in church aisles to block sash-wearers from receiving communion.

If these actions aren't just about the most non-Christian actions I have ever seen, I'll eat my rainbow sash! Let's review, Fr. Flynn: "Self-righteousness is destructive and uncharitable."
