The LGBTQ group that arranged the funeral said Feb. 20 it wants “accountability” from the cathedral for shortening the service from a full Mass to a shorter liturgy without the Eucharist.

“A public apology will also be requested from the Archdiocese of New York for the painfully dismissive and exclusionary language used in their recent statement,” said GLITS Inc. (Gays and Lesbians Living in a Transgender Society) in a news release announcing it will hold a news conference with political and religious leaders and community members about the matter at City Hall Feb. 21.


In its Feb. 20 news release, GLITS said the “rash decision made by clergy members” at the cathedral “abruptly cut short … this joyful and celebratory commemoration of (Gentili’s) powerful legacy.” The service “ended an hour earlier than had been scheduled, thus denying her the full funeral Mass that was agreed upon,” it said.

The community Gentili served “requests a public apology to heal from the pain,” it said, and added that the rector “alluding to the presence of trans and the LGTBQ+ community at large as ‘forces of sin and darkness'” in his statement “is incendiary rhetoric that contributes to further discrimination against LGBTQ+ communities.”

The release cited Pope Francis’ call “for a more open and inclusive church,” adding, “We hope that LGBTQ+ parishioners and mourners won’t be left to feel abandoned yet again by the faith that they still want to call home.”

But Gentili was a self-professed atheist who had been “reexamining (a) relationship with religion for a long time,” according to a November 2023 interview. Gentili had come “from a family of so many different faiths,” including Catholicism, that the activist didn’t feel “attached to any of them.”
My high school basketball team wasn’t very good. We tried mightily but lost almost every game. When another team would put on a full court press we basically fell apart.

They are doing a full court press here. And we’ve done terribly. They have the ball again and are playing the Francis card (Todos, todos, todos) against us. They will score, we will get the ball, and they will press and force a turnover before we get even half way down the court.

They just need to mourn in their own way and move on. Lying to get your way for a funeral is a new low.

This was political theater. It was lying and manipulation all along the way. The goal is to own us. They are well on their way.

These are “signs of the times” my dear readers.

Sure the staff at St. Pat’s didn’t know ahead what was going to happen. Okay. But they didn’t fall off a turnip truck and then gain leadership at NYC’s Cathedral. They sure knew when it was about to start and they let it happen. [NB ALL: Read the comments, below, also.] Sure the people in Austin read TC. They could have found another way. They could helped the people who would be hurt by this. The people in Austin who have lost the TLM and have been blown hot air and lollipops didn’t fall off a turnip truck either.

No one is fooling anybody.

These are “signs of the times.”

Thankfully, they can never manipulate God. There will be a day of reckoning for this whole LGBT movement.

OF COURSE they cited Fiducia supplicans. That is a no brainer. I hope papa Francesco hears about it so he is at least not unaware of the mess he has made.
We all knew this was a foot in the door.

The LGBTQ community makes it sound like the church was advised of what was about to happen. I wonder if that’s true?
They will lie to get their way. Anything that doesn't support their lifestyle is hate according to them.
