Drag “sisters” receive the Eucharist from archbishop

.- The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a group of men mockingly dressed as religious sisters, received Holy Communion from the Archbishop of San Francisco last Sunday.

The “sisters”, dressed in costume and white facial paint, and with names such as “Sister Porn Again” and “Sister Roz Erection,” were given the Eucharist by Archbishop George Niederauer at the Most Holy Redeemer parish in San Francisco.

California Catholic Daily reports that the parish and its pastor, Father Stephen Meriwether, have been sympathetic to the predominately homosexual population of the Castro district in San Francisco where it is located.

Americans for Truth about Homosexuality adds that the parish has participated in the San Francisco Gay Pride Parade and allowed the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to lease a hall for “Revival Bingo”, giving the men in the group the opportunity to dress as sisters and award prizes such as sex toys and porn DVDs. 

Americans for Truth also reports that while many orthodox Catholic organizations detest the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence for their anti-Catholic and anti-Christian actions, they are also known as a charity group in the San Francisco area that raises money for causes such as AIDS. 

Parishoners were disappointed that the archbishop didn’t preach to the sisters, whose slogan is “Go forth and sin some more!”

The witness stated that the archbishop’s homily was very generic.  “He could have used the occasion to preach to them, but he didn’t.”

Allyson Smith, an analyst for Americans for Truth, noted, “San Francisco Archbishop George Niederauer did not condemn the depravity of  Folsom Street Fair, which occurred in front of one of his own parishes or the blasphemous antics of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence there. Yet one week later, he gave Holy Communion, which Catholics believe is the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, to these same twisted ’sisters’ who were dressed in full drag costumes.”
