Okay. Ew.

I was looking for the original source of Dan Shutte's lifestyle after reading and commenting on ma beck's blog and I found it. Okay. Ew.

Dan Shutte's mother's obituary:
Schutte, Marie

Why are we continuing to use this music? He is living an openly gay lifestyle. I am glad I found the info because I remember reading it but had to Google a bit to get to the bottom of the source. This is not an issue of him being gay. It is a musician we are allowing to have workshops and being a representative of our church here in the US living an openly gay lifestyle. Is it okay for us to fund a gay lifestyle by using these hymns? Buying the missals and music issues that contain this music, funds his gay partnership. We surely need a St. Francis in our times. Morality is not popular in Catholic circles any longer.

My mother would come back to haunt me if her obituary included mention of a fornicating child's partner, male or female.
