Droppings from the Catholic Birdcage: "Welcome to the Year of Mercy. You're Fired"

Father Peter Daly, pastor of  St. John Vianney parish in Prince Frederick, Maryland, writing in National Catholic Reporter yesterday:

"Welcome to the Year of Mercy. You're fired." 
That may sound like Donald Trump doing pastoral ministry, but it is actually our church.

Please do go on and read the rest of this inspiring article, which is a testimony to what one parish can do to welcome and affirm LGBTQ members — in sharp contrast to the behavior of far too many Catholic institutions in the U.S. right now. But as you read, don't forget Daly's opening salvo, which speaks the truth.

Can't credibly babble about mercy when behaving like its opposite.
