Ontario's Pride Parade Driving Catholic Fundamentalists to Distraction

Combine a gay pride parade with the fact that Ontario's premier, Kathleen Wynne, is gay and you get ...

According to Lifesite News:
Catholics in Toronto are urging the faithful to band together this week to offer prayers of reparation for their city’s Gay Pride parade on Sunday.

The prayer campaign, called “Charity, Clarity, Chastity,” began Friday and will continue until July 2nd, spanning the entire 264 hours of Pride Week. They are urging Catholics to offer “reparational prayer, fasting, and sacrifices."
[...]
The event is organized by the Courage Reparational Group Toronto and EnCourage Toronto, which are associated with the international Courage Apostolate, a Vatican-endorsed organization that offers support for persons struggling with same-sex attraction (SSA).
In case you don't get it, they are not praying for gays; They are praying for forgiveness for the sins of gays. Click on the link, above, and you read about how we are objectively disordered. Yet, their prayer for "clarity" includes:
We repent of any ways in which persons with SSA or gender identity conflicts have been the object of unjust discrimination, including violent malice in speech or in action ...
At the risk of stating the obvious, just referring to "SSA" as if included in the DSM is discriminatory. People don't struggle with "same-sex attraction." The holier-than-thou crowd seems to struggle with accepting gay people as equals under civil law.

The Catholic Church should repent en masse for the discrimination that it has subjected LGBT people to.
