Priest’s Amazing Response After He Said Two Men Spat on Him in Midst of NYC Gay Pride Parade

I’d like to think it’s possible to support gay marriage and/or be happy with the Supreme Court ruling, while also saying it is inappropriate to spit on anyone…let alone a priest[1]. Two liberals in New York City apparently thought differently.


Walking down Broadway and 22nd St just now, I ran into gay marriage parade. Two men walked by and spat on me. Oh well… I deserve worse.

The two men who spat on me are probably very good man caught up in excitement and past resentment. Most in that parade would not do that.

He handled it a lot better than I would have.  It must be that “turn the other cheek” thing.
