I am unable to think of any possible, rational reason why there would be a screening of the movie “Milk” on the premises of a Catholic parish. However, I am able to think of several disgusting, irrational reasons – the most obvious of which being that, said parish being the one that serves the local university students, this was a (very) misguided attempt to ‘mentor’ or ‘validate’ a group of students whose struggles with sexual identity are naturally at odds with their Catholic faith.
Lest you think I jest, have a look at the online bulletin for this parish; go to page 2 and check out the box on the right-hand side, it’s the second event listed for Monday, March 29. Click here for the pdf bulletin.
Charity prevents me from commenting further; although you, dear reader, are welcome to speculate at will in the comments.
