Most Holy Redeemer Parish Staff: David Differding

 

The atmosphere at MHR can corrupt good priests and laypeople. We are all sinners. We have no desire to attack any person, clerical or lay, for the sake of attacking, but if we are to show the harm caused by the embracing of homosexuality at MHR, we must tell the truth.
 

"To David Differding, co-chair of the parish liturgy council and master of ceremonies at the Oct. 7 liturgy, the critics (of the Archbishop giving communion to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence) 'can't get over the fact that God created gay people. That's my impression. They want to put up every roadblock they can.'"

--"Pastor: Reaction to archbishop giving Communion to 'nuns' overblown." -
Rick DelVecchio and Dan Morris-Young, Catholic News Service.

At least as recently as July 7, 2008, David Differding was the coordinator of the Liturgy Planning Group at Most Holy Redeemer. The group is now called the Worship Committee, and the coordinators position is listed as "none specified." He also serves as an acolyte.

This picture shows David Differding serving as Master of Ceremonies during the Archbishop’s October 2007 Mass at MHR.

This picture (go here first, then here; Differding is the man on the left) shows Differding at the 2005 “Golden Dildeaux” awards. Mr. Differding was competing for the “Dick of Death Award.”

It will be good here to remind ourselves of Church rules. From "Redemptionis Sacramentum" #46

"The lay Christian faithful called to give assistance at liturgical celebrations should be well instructed and must be those whose Christian life, morals and fidelity to the Church’s Magisterium recommend them."

Mr. Differding is so publicly active that he requires a chronology of his own. Warning: some of the photos linked to below are obscene. Please note: we did not take these photos, nor did we publish them. They are published on a website that publicly celebrates such events.

We link to them to show the result of 26 years of neglect of our same-sex attracted brothers and sisters by the Archdiocese. That neglect has led to a church whose Liturgy Planning Coordinator openly attends and sometimes competes in/judges such events. He, and the community at MHR, sincerely see nothing wrong with this.

MHR Altar Server and member of Liturgy Planning Committee David Differding writes complaining letter to "San Francisco Bay Times--The Gay/Lesbian/Bi/Trans Newspaper and Event Calendar for the Bay Area." Differding is upset about KRON's coverage of the Gay pride Parade, particularly that: "KRON (TV) missed an educational opportunity by not covering any Fetish, Kink or Transgender organizations . . . KRON turned off their cameras, and didn't even give the Leather Community the courtesy of being interviewed. The Leather Community contingent was over one block long, and we might as well have not been there, for the non-coverage they gave our community."
