The Defenders describe themselves as “a Catholic leather club,” and the About Us section of their webpage says “The Defenders/SF is a club for individuals who value and wish to celebrate both their Leather sexuality and their Christian spirituality.” The webpage of Dignity USA says “The Defenders believe that the leather experience can, when integrated and spiritually informed, actually produce a richer spirituality for us, and for the Church.”
How is this allowed to happen.
We need some journalists whose job it would be to hound these folks and answer some questions
UPDATE at 9:01 PM Aug. 30
Was alerted by a commenter. If you go to the original article, a commenter there says:
FYI — THIS EVENT WILL NOT BE HELD ON CATHOLIC PROPERTY. A phone call to Bishop Soto’s office confirmed this. Also a call to the retreat center confirms this retreat is canceled. THANKS BE TO GOD!This was confirmed by a blogger.
It may have moved to another venue.
