POOR NATIONAL CHISMATIC REPORTER (NCR) DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO HANDLE AGING BABY BOOMERS, MOSTLY WOMEN, WHO ARE PROGRESSIVE, RACIST HETERODOX BIGOTS WHO ARE XENOPHOBIC ABOUT THEIR AFRICAN (NIGERIAN) ORTHODOX PASTOR
The humanity of it all, their very black pastor in this all white aging baby boomer parish replaced earthenware cups with gold chalices!
Here's the best part of the Catholic Chismatic article:
The pastor has been hailed as a hero by traditionalist groups...who see in him a crusader against what they describe as hypocritical Catholics who don't follow the church's rubrics. They have accused his critics of racism. Regular references in the traditionalist Catholic media refer to the protesters as gray-haired refugees from a long-gone post-Vatican II era, boomers who have lost their way amid the liberal notions that permeate Portland life.
St. Francis has become a Rorschach test for traditionalists on social media, projecting what they don't like about many modern American parishes. A writer for Crisis Magazineseethed that the involvement of women protesters was an attack on spiritual masculinity.
