It's been interesting that despite the prima faciae hate speech being directed against the Catholic Church that it continues
In a way it's not surprising, since the bar owner has proven to be vulgar and disrespectful in the extreme as when the concerned forum owner of Fisheaters approached him in a very friendly way. I don't think he'd tolerate anyone talking to his female relatives the way he wrote to her by completely unnecessary verbal putrescence.
It's also not surprising that the media, both local and national has been unsympathetic and even disrespectful in their own right. Local Baltimore Fox affiliate lied when it said that it tried to contact leaders of the group opposed to "Ale Mary's" blasphemy initially. They still haven't contacted anyone. They also weren't interested in Tom River's threatening and offensive behavior either.
Despite attempting to justify this farce, they've appealed to the Archdiocese which gave far less than a resounding endorsement, and claimed to have a certificate that justifies the objects use. We've tried to respectfully contact the Archdiocese, but no further clarification has been given.
We'll assume that is a green light for more prayer and fasting.
There is going to be a rosary said before the bar on the Sunday after Corpus Christi at 230pm. All Catholics and non-Catholics who find this sort of thing detestable are invited to attend and show solidarity.
