“I would not be surprised if many of you here have heard ‘Love the sinner. Hate the sin.’ And the ‘love the sinner and hate the sin’ is in absolute contrary to the ways of Jesus,” declared a pastor at the Cathedral of Hope in Dallas, Texas.
On September 17, 2023, this pro-LGBTQ+ center, masquerading as a Christian church, hosted an event to express anger and protest against Texas SB 12, a law that protects children from being exposed to immoral drag queen shows.
To demonstrate their radical inclusiveness, the organizers held a special service to honor and bless drag queens. To make things worse, they invited the blasphemous and anti-Catholic Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to do the blessings.
Who is Like Unto God!
Thus, nearly forty Catholics joined Tradition, Family, Property (TFP)—Texas for a peaceful protest and act of reparation.
“How this church could honor and bless a group of pro-LGBTQ+ activists who are known for publicly mocking and blaspheming the Catholic faith shows their true colors,” said Elias Bartel, one of the TFP volunteers present.
Giving voice to the indignation caused by this scandal, the prayer warriors carried signs that said, “I’m Catholic. Stop Attacking My Faith” and “Drag Queens Need Prayers, Not Public Platforms.” Many passing cars honked in support. TFP volunteer William Gossett commented, “The time has come for Catholics to wake up and shout, like Saint Michael, ‘Who is like unto God.’ The good people have been silent for too long, and look where silence has brought us.”
The Rosary rally protest featured the recitations of Our Fathers and Hail Marys, the shouting of slogans and the playing of bagpipes. One woman came out of the Cathedral saying, “I have been attending this church for a while. But this is too much. They have become too political. I will not be attending here any longer.”
Where Does Radical Inclusion End?
The TFP rally ended after nearly two hours of peaceful protest and prayer. The egregious behavior of those at the so-called Cathedral of Hope left many wondering, “Where does radical inclusion end?” They were blessing and honoring a group of blasphemous and sexually perverted “drag nuns” in the name of diversity and inclusion.
The event targeted a law that would protect the innocence of children from drag queens. Who in their right mind would not be in favor of protecting the innocence of children?
Indeed, the pastor who blasphemously affirmed that “hate the sin and love the sinner” is contrary to the ways of Jesus would do well to remember another quote from the Sacred Scriptures, “Woe to you that call evil good, and good evil: that put darkness for light, and light for darkness…” (Isaiah 5:20).
