Homosexual Activism in the Archdiocese of San Francisco.
The Activists and Same-Sex "Marriage"
our contention: the Archdiocese of San Francisco has been
infiltrated by homosexual activists. The corruption has
proceeded on three fronts, mainly through three
institutions: Catholic Charities CYO; The (Jesuit)
University of San Francisco, and Most Holy Redeemer Church.
On the issue of the sinfulness of homosexuality these
three institutions constitute a "fifth column" within the
Archdiocese of San Francisco.
On May 13,
2008 the California Supreme Court ruled 4-3 that same-sex
"marriage" is now legal in California. The California
Catholic Bishops immediately condemned the ruling. So did
our local bishops: Archbishop
of San Francisco, and Bishop
Allen Vigneron of Oakland.
What is the attitude of the three institutions we have been
discussing? There is conclusive evidence that the "fifth
column" in the Archdiocese is not on the side of the Church,
but opposed to her.
Most Holy Redeemer Church and same-sex "marriage."
Redeemer, its pastor, and prominent members of the parish
have publicly opposed Church teaching on this issue for
years and continue to publicly do so today:
On November 8, 1999 the San Francisco Board of Supervisors offers Resolution #992060, commending Pastor Fr. Zachary Shore and Most Holy Redeemer for their opposition to Proposition 22, which would make sure California only recognizes as marriage the union of one man and one woman.

Honorary Committee Members of the event (and their reactions

Mayor Gavin Newsom: "What a day in San Francisco! What a day for equality! Who among us was prepared for this extraordinary moment and extraordinary time," said Newsom, who cut short a trip to Washington, D.C. to return home Wednesday night to await the court's ruling. "I can't tell you how proud I am to be a San Franciscan." "It's an affirmation of the gay and lesbian community and an extraordinary day for all of us as Americans," Newsom told the Bay Area Reporter in a Thursday phone call.

"The bishops must feel pressure to go along," he said. "There aren't that many going around campaigning for (Prop. 8). I think they signed off on (the e-mail) and hoped it ends soon."
But after the election, the Jesuits of USF were a little more open:

Executive Director of University Ministry at USF, had this
