New York: Votive Mass for the Celebration of Vice during the Unholy Triduum

"New York’s Pride Parade is, truly, the one that started it all. A year after the 1969 police raid on the Stonewall Inn, a [homosexual] bar in Greenwich Village, [homosexual] activists walked 51 blocks to Central Park in the world’s first ever Pride march. Over 40 years later, New York City is still at the heart of the [homosexual] rights movement, and the Pride events continue to grow in popularity every year. You can check out 2014’s events June 27-29." [Source: Yahoo News]

Therefore, during this Unholy Triduum, what better way to celebrate public sin, debauchery and immorality, and explicitly celebrate the cardinal sin of pride, than a mass?

Will the Archdiocese of New York allow this to proceed? Will the Lord Cardinal Archbishop allow this to proceed?

Apparently, those responsible find it truly appropriate to celebrate such things in the name of Saints Peter and Paul?... "Lying teachers" (see below), who cloak an attack on unchanging Divine Law and Catholic moral doctrine under a false sense of "charity" and "inclusiveness" of "all"...  Here is what Saints Peter and Paul, the real ones, not their rainbow-colored avatars, have to say.

Saint Paul:

"Be not deceived, God is not mocked. For what things a man shall sow, those also shall he reap. For he that soweth in his flesh, of the flesh also shall reap corruption." (Galatians, vi)

"Know you not that the unjust shall not possess the kingdom of God? Do not err: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor the effeminate, nor liers with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor railers, nor extortioners, shall possess the kingdom of God. And such some of you were; but you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Spirit of our God. All things are lawful to me, but all things are not expedient. All things are lawful to me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

"Meat for the belly, and the belly for the meats; but God shall destroy both it and them: but the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. Now God hath both raised up the Lord, and will raise us up also by his power. Know you not that your bodies are the members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of a harlot? God forbid. Or know you not, that he who is joined to a harlot, is made one body? For they shall be, saith he, two in one flesh. But he who is joined to the Lord, is one spirit. Fly fornication. Every sin that a man doth, is without the body; but he that committeth fornication, sinneth against his own body. Or know you not, that your members are the temple of the Holy Ghost, who is in you, whom you have from God; and you are not your own? For you are bought with a great price. Glorify and bear God in your body." (I Corinthians, vi)

Saint Peter:
"But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there shall be among you lying teachers, who shall bring in sects of perdition, and deny the Lord who bought them: bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their riotousnesses, through whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you. Whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their perdition slumbereth not. For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but delivered them, drawn down by infernal ropes to the lower hell, unto torments, to be reserved unto judgment; and spared not the original world, but preserved Noe, the eighth person, the preacher of justice, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; and reducing the cities of the Sodomites, and of the Gomorrhites, into ashes, condemned them to be overthrown, making them an example to those that should after act wickedly; and delivered just Lot, oppressed by the injustice and lewd conversation of the wicked -- for in sight and hearing he was just: dwelling among them, who from day to day vexed the just soul with unjust works -- the Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly from temptation, but to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be tormented. And especially them who walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government, audacious, self willed, they fear not to bring in sects, blaspheming, whereas angels who are greater in strength and power, bring not against themselves a railing judgment. But these men, as irrational beasts, naturally tending to the snare and to destruction, blaspheming those things which they know not, shall perish in their corruption, receiving the reward of their injustice, counting for a pleasure the delights of a day: stains and spots, sporting themselves to excess, rioting in their feasts with you: having eyes full of adultery and of sin that ceaseth not: alluring unstable souls, having their heart exercised with covetousness, children of malediction: leaving the right way they have gone astray, having followed the way of Balaam of Bosor, who loved the wages of iniquity, but had a check of his madness, the dumb beast used to the yoke, which speaking with man' s voice, forbade the folly of the prophet.

"These are fountains without water, and clouds tossed with whirlwinds, to whom the mist of darkness is reserved. For speaking proud words of vanity, they allure by the desires of fleshly riotousness, those who for a little while escape, such as converse in error: Promising them liberty, whereas they themselves are the slaves of corruption. For by whom a man is overcome, of the same also he is the slave. For if, flying from the pollutions of the world, through the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they be again entangled in them and overcome: their latter state is become unto them worse than the former.

"For it had been better for them not to have known the way of justice, than after they have known it, to turn back from that holy commandment which was delivered to them. For, that of the true proverb has happened to them: 'The dog is returned to his vomit.'" (II Peter, ii)
