Steaming Hypocrisy Served By Holy Eunuchs
John McCusker died at age 31 while on ski vacation in Mamoth California. John McCusker was an nightclub owner, entrepreneur and an all around big-hearted guy. He helped raise money for the Polinsky Center, trying to help it become more than just a place where troubled kids are dumped by an uncaring society. He served as Vice-President of the the San Diego Business Association, and helped raise money for scholarships and to fight AIDS.
John was such a valuable member of the community that:
John was 26 at the time.
John was an alum of the University of San Diego, and his funeral was planned for Immaculata basilica on campus. Until the Bishop of the Diocese of San Diego, Robert Brom, told the Immaculata, and every one of the 98 catholic Churches in San Diego and Imperial Counties that John McCusker could not receive the sacrament of a funeral.
You see, that nightclub John owned has a gay clientele. And John was gay.
Maybe if John had been a heterosexual crime boss whose only crimes were loan-sharking, pimping, dealing drugs, and murder he could have gotten a funeral with the Bishop himself presiding.
