God Hates Fags To Picket Funeral Of Philadelphia Cardinal Who Died Amid Pedophile Priests Trials
by David Badash on February 1, 2012
God Hates Fags announced today they will picket the funeral of Philadelphia Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua, who died yesterday, amid several cases of priests on trial for pedophile rape, sex abuse, and molestation. Bevilacqua, 88, was Archbishop of Philadelphia from 1988 to 2003, and was deemed fit to stand trial and deliver testimony prior to his death. Bevilacqua was accused of ignoring the pedophile priest scandal that occurred on his watch.
“Bevilacqua, known for his regular press-the-flesh visits to all 302 parishes in the archdiocese and for his strong stands against racism and anti-Semitism, was also sharply critical of homosexuals and refused for several years to close Catholic churches and schools to honor the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday,” the L.A. Times reported, adding:
Bevilacqua’s tenure was marred by clergy sexual-abuse revelations that rocked the Philadelphia archdiocese in 2002, as the scandal was erupting nationwide and in Europe.
