Catholics for Equality - The Mutiny Begins

I was in DC this weekend as one of the "founding fathers" of Catholics for Equality.

I wasn't sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. This could work.

LOL
The mouse that roared- I'm sure the bishops are quaking in their mitres!

Ah Thomas Tucker! I had wondered if you had been kidnapped by some landed old Catholic fag hag diamond encrusted Countess and chained to a private altar in a Bavarian castle forced to hold your water while singing all verses ofDear Lady of Fatima. The fact that this has raised the fur on your back is a good sign. Sort of like the ground hoggy reaction of earlier in the week.

Yes, Dear Father, and like the movie version of
Groundhog Day, I think we've all seen this scenario countless times before. So I await the quick apogee of your little group (which has probably already ocurred) followed by its evaporation into the Mists of Misguided Adventures.
In the meantime, the barque of Christ sails on.
Still enjoy reading you from time to time, however.

Well, Thomas, I hope you won't be distressed to learn that our funding from a national advocacy group has been amplified as has the membership of the organizing group. There seems to be momentum. I think the blindness of our bishops equals the blindness of the NBC brass in botching the Conan/Leno thing. Both are out-of-touch weezing dinosaurs.

Well let's meet back in 25 years and we'll see which group is still going strong, shall we?
Meet me in the first booth, at the table reserved for The Prodigal Son.

Well, that is fairly obvious.
But it certainly doesn't mean that every small group of concerned citizens becomes successful.
And it doesn't speak to whether their agenda is for good or for evil- agendas of both types start with small groups of committed citizens.
