Another sign that some people just don’t get Catholicism …


A homosexual organization is planning a massive “kiss-in” in front of the pope as he leaves Barcelona's cathedral on Sunday during his planned visit to Spain.

The group, which calls itself Queer Kissing FlashMob, is calling on homosexuals to kiss each other for two minutes as the pope passes, and then disperse. The group hopes to infiltrate the crowd by dressing like people from traditional Catholic movements such as “Cuentame” and Opus Dei, according to its website.

“In view of the inevitable visit to Barcelona by the highest representative of an institution that for many years has been antagonistic, not to say an enemy of the struggle for sexual and affective rights of many who don’t practice exclusively reproductive sex ... we have planned to do something to show our discomfort,” said one version of the group’s Facebook page, which has also called upon participants to avoid all verbal forms of expression and gestures of hostility.

Of course this will immediately cause the Pope to have a blinding revelation of the sanctity of homosexual love, upon which epiphany he will reverse two thousand years of Christian moral teaching.

NOT.

“Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so men persecuted the prophets who were before you” (Mt 5:11-12).

Maybe, perhaps, could be, your discomfort just might be the point? You think?
