    Whoops… you had it!

    I wonder how the other signatories feel about their new-found relationship to hate groups?

    Did anyone notice the signature of the Reverend Father Robert Sirico of the Acton Institute.

    Robert Sirico in another life was an ordained minister of the Metropolitan Community Churches. He also served as the executive director of the Los Angeles Gay Community Center (1976/77?)

    He started out as a Pentecostal teen evangelist in Seattle where he packed out a movie theater on Sundays.

    When he came out as gay he lost all that and became a MCC minister and pastored the MCC in Seattle. He later moved to an assistant position with the LA church.

    I heard him speak once at the first Midwest conference of MCCs (1974). He was a very powerful speaker.

    He got into some kind of disagreement with Troy Perry and left MCC.

    Somewhere along the line he joined the Roman Catholic Church and he also became mentored by the Domino Pizza founder.

    About 3 years ago he conducted Chuck Colson and James Dobson on a trip to Rome and arranged an audience with the late pope.

    It is not clear if he now considers himself an ex-gay or a gay celibate priest.

    What really bothers me is that these people who are leaders of anti-gay hate groups (Family Research Institute, Mass Resistance) are the co-sponsors of the C Street Family sponsored “Prayer Breakfast” which I have read Obama plans to attend. If he does attend this breakfast, I will no longer support anything he does as long as he is in government.
