An organization in Argentina has launched a campaign in support of Fr. Jorge Daniel Gomez, a priest being attacked by the media for stopping an anti-Catholic performance.
The organization, ArgentinosAlerta.org, said it decided to start the online campaign because priests should be supported when they stand up for the truth, and not just criticized for their failings.
A video posted on YouTube shows a clip from a Jan. 13 event known as the Chivo National Festival. After Fr. Gomez, a priest from the Diocese of San Rafael, and his folklore band performed, a group called The Lutherieces took the stage to perform a number from “Les Luthiers.”
The Lutherieces were dressed as friars and performed a number mocking priests, saints and Catholic devotions, especially chastity.
