Commentary by Susan Brinkmann, OCDS
The relentlessly “PC” press once again chose to look the other way as last Sunday’s annual gay festival in San Francisco featured outright nudity, public sex acts, and blatant promotion of sado-masochism.
The Catholic League is reporting that the Folsom Street Fair, which was held on September 23, was one of the most outrageous festivals yet.
“They did more than walk the streets nude—they beat each other with whips. The leather/fetish homosexuals led each other around like dogs with metal collars; they set up booths where visitors could get flogged; they sold hard-core pornography; they promoted BDSM (bondage, domination, sadism and masochism); they mutilated their bodies with metal spikes. And after promoting lethal sex acts—the kind that causes AIDS—they raised money for AIDS,” reports Catholic League president Bill Donohue.
As usual, participants in the various activities openly mocked the Catholic church by dressing up as cardinals, bishops and nuns. One group even disparaged the Jesuits by calling themselves the “Society of Janus” – a group that specializes in BDSM.
“The anti-Catholic aspects of this grand exhibition of moral destitution are not hard to understand: the participants are in a constant state of rebellion against truth,” Donohue writes.
It’s interesting to note that this is House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s district, a “Catholic” congresswoman and staunch abortion supporter who supports “equal rights” for homosexuals.
“It would have been great if the media had covered this event and then asked her to respond,” Donohue writes.
Of course, they refused to do so. Other than the Huffington Post and a few local papers, the media was almost completely mum on this unfettered look into the real world of homosexuality in America. God forbid the mainstream media should stray from their narrative of presenting same-gender relations as just another “normal” lifestyle. Imagine how many minds would change about “same-sex” relations if just a few photos from this fair were shown on national television.
“It has been evident for some time that this country suffers from an acute case of cultural schizophrenia,” Donohue aptly points out. “We endorse libertine norms and values while decrying their effects. It’s time we grew up.”
