Now I have seen it all. Gay Mass with the prayers of the faithful by a man dressed in a dress, complete with wig. Is it just me who feels this way or does anyone else agree that this is totally unacceptable? It makes a mockery of Mass!
The Mass in the video was apparently celebrated at the Church of the Assumption and St Gregory in Warwick Street in the Diocese of Westminster. This parish, as regularly as twice a month, celebrates Mass specifically for LGBT Catholics. Apparently, these special Masses for LGBT Catholics are referred to as the Soho Masses.
I fail to understand why there is a need to have a special Mass celebrated specifically for LGBT Catholics. A LGBT Catholic Mass once or twice a year or at certain special moments, in order remind Catholics of the challenges faced by the LGBT brothers and sisters, I can understand. However, as a regular feature, this is just total nonsense. LGBT Catholics are Catholics like everyone else.
Catholics should all attend Mass together and no person should be made to feel unwelcome or uncomfortable because of ones sexual orientation. I do not believe any LGBT Catholic can honestly claim that he or she feels uncomfortable or unwelcome at, for want of a better word, a “normal” Catholic Mass. Yet, I can tell you honestly, that this LGBT Catholic Mass would make me feel extremely uncomfortable and it is unconscionable that this has been permitted to take place on such a frequent and on going basis.
Some LGBT Catholics are selfishly pursuing their own agendas regardless of the cost. It must be stopped!
