Bishop Malone of Buffalo found out through Vennari and presumably other social media (another victory for the Catholic Internet) and promptly ordered the priest to remove it. In a response to John Vennari, the Bishop wrote:
“Thank you for your message regarding the sign at SS Columba – Brigid Church here in Buffalo. As soon as I learned of this sign, I took immediate action to have it removed. The pastor of SS Columba – Brigid Church told me that the “2 Dads” were meant to refer to a child who has both a father and stepfather. There are several children in his parish who have both a father and stepfather. However, given the potential for the meaning of this message to be misunderstood and even perceived in a heretical way, it was immediately removed.”Yes, that's right. The priest meant those with a step-dad. Right.
But that's not all. I took a little look through the web page, Photos are always very helpful.
Are you ready for "communion?"
Tell us now Father Roy Herberger, is that a rainbow in that stole? Is that a picnic because it certainly is not a Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. It is an abomination. It is a blasphemy at your hands. You are disgrace to the priesthood. A disgrace to Buffalo.
If you believe that sign wasn't about a couple of sodomites, I've some nice pristine land along the Love Canal for sale too.
Who gave this man boy his First Holy Communion?
