You be the judge

Recently I posted an article about the Archbishop in San Francisco who allegedly did not know that he was giving Holy Communion at Mass to blasphemers and then later apologized. Here is the story complete with photos of the people receiving Holy Communion filmed by outraged parishioners. You be the judge after reading this article here.


The Miller Brewing Company has sponsored the Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco.
