Church Janitor Destroys Sacrilegious Cathedral Display

Edit: someone at the Cathedral of Saint Cecelia in Omaha Nebraska thought it was a good idea to include mannequins of Mary Poppins, a Buddha for a King and I display and Queen Elizabeth I of England, scourge of the Church. 

Although Mark Kenney, the man who tossed the ridiculous displays out of the cathedral has some sense, neither the pastor, a canon lawyer, a religious educator with a hyphenated name from the nearby Jesuit University, not the approproately named Archbishop George Lucas have any sense.

[Omaha] ...Mark Kenney  returned to Omaha and has worked blue-collar jobs, including the $12-an-hour position that he lost at the cathedral. He now is a custodian at a nursing home. His wife of 32 years is a pharmacy technician, and they care for her 62-year-old sister, who has mental disabilities.

In a letter of termination two days after the festival incident, Gutgsell wrote to Kenney: “None of the florists and none of the volunteers, any number of whom took time off their work or traveled some distance, had the slightest intention or reason to dishonor the Cathedral. You assigned the word ‘desecration’ to the entire project and as a result slandered anyone associated with it.”

Dwayne Ibsen, who provided the costumes, said Kenney tossed out an “Elizabeth I” outfit that had won six awards at national costumer conventions. Insurance companies are assessing the damage to mannequins and costumes, Ibsen said, adding that it appeared to be between $5,000 and $6,000.

Please Consider Contacting the Archdiocese about their evil conduct:

Already on 1 February six candidates had been consecrated in Denton in  Nebraska to subdiaconate   Bishop Fabian Wendelin Bruskewitz, Bishop Emeritus of Lincoln, carried out the consecrations in the Seminary of the Fraternity in Lincoln.
The Fraternity of St. Peter, an Institute of Tradition,  is as a whole is characterized by a very well-educated clergy that stands out not only in the worthy celebration of the Immemorial Mass of All Ages, the serious administration of the sacraments, but also in catechesis and pastoral care. The Fraternity of St. Peter has published pictures of the Subdiaconal Ordination in Deuchelried .
