Prelates blast Palermo for gay logos on saint's day

Palermo, July 15 - A representative of Palermo's prelates on Monday slammed the festivities for the Sicilian capital's patron saint, Saint Rosalia, for "homosexual ideology". "Shame! We are touching the bottom," wrote Don Fabrizio Moscato, secretary of Palermo Archbishop Paolo Romeo, on a Facebook page. Moscato was shaken by the projection of Gay Pride and LGBT logos on the facade of the Palermo Cathedral in front of thousands of faithful gathered for the religious celebration Sunday evening. The images, which were taken during last month's national Gay Pride festivities, were part of a series of videos of events that took place over the past year in the city. Moscato berated the "homosexual ideology projected on the noble southern portico of the Palermo Cathedral" and the "symbols of gay pride and recognition of homosexual unions placed next to a newborn". The priest posted photos of the projections as well as images of the ceremonial float used to carry the sacred saint's statue to the cathedral. The priest complained that the float was decorated with "orgiastic motifs". "Who can convince me that this is all normal? Who can have arguments to defend a real insult to the nobility of the faith that the Santuzza (Little Saint) and the Cathedral represent?" the priest wrote. "This is the exploitation of children! This is a future imposed on minors by minority groups who have a false and deviant view".
