Disservice to church

To the Editor:

The Rev. Brian Grody told the Boy/Cub Scout troops to no longer use the meeting rooms of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church. That is unbelievable. There are probably more gays and lesbians than he realizes in his parish now. Will he be kicking them out when he finds out who they are? How about all the priests who molested many boys of all ages? Will they be excluded, or just sent to another parish?

Shame on him. What he preaches at the altar is not what he practices. Did he forget Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of us, not just some? Besides, God made everyone, including gays and lesbians.

I am not a homosexual, but I am a practicing Catholic. Rev. Grody does a disservice as a representative of the Catholic Church. He speaks his words when he should be speaking our Lord’s words.
