On Monday, March 30, the Concerned Parents and Students: TeachAcceptance group marched from San Francisco’s Mission Dolores Church to St. Mary’s Cathedral. The march was in opposition to San Francisco Archbishop Cordileone’s initiative to ensure a faithful Catholic identity in the high schools of the archdiocese of San Francisco. Around 200 people attended.
As CalCatholic noted in coverage of the group‘s previous demonstration, it is not dominated by students. For a movement that sells itself as a coalition of high schoolers, the march featured more senior citizens than high school seniors. One group that has become intertwined with Concerned Parents and Students: TeachAcceptance is Dignity San Francisco, the local branch of Dignity USA. Dignity is an organization of homosexual activists attempting to remake the Catholic Church.
There is quite a bit of cross-posting on the Facebook pages of DignitySF and Concerned Parents. The entire photo album chronicling Monday’s march, and to which the Concerned Parents page links, is hosted on the Facebook page of DignitySF. Among the middle-aged to elderly prominent at Monday’s march were two gray-haired men carrying a large “TeachAcceptance” banner, Ernest Camisa and Ed Malcolm. Camisa is the Secretary of Dignity San Francisco. Malcolm is one of DignitySF’s Directors-at-large.
An integral arm of DignitySF is The Defenders, an s/m group that practices “Leather Spirituality.” From June 30-July 5, DignityUSA will host its 2015 Convention at the Renaissance Hotel in Seattle. Keynote speakers include Justin Tanis, a woman who now considers herself a man; ex-Catholic priest Jim Smith; and celebrity gay promoter Dan Savage.
At the convention, Tanis will discuss “Seeing the Divine in Us: Queer Images of Jesus, Mary and the Saints.” Dignity’s convention webpage describes her as “the managing director of the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies in Religion and Ministry at Pacific School of Religion.” Left unmentioned is her frequent role as a leader of workshops at s/m conferences on being a “slave.” From the program for the 2012 Master/slave Conference (formatting in original), where Tanis gave workshops and served on the three-person education team: “slave justin has been enjoying SM for over 20 years and has served as a slave for almost 14 years.”
Another speaker is ex-Catholic priest Jim Smith, who will give a workshop on Orgasmic Prayer: “God did not create us with nerve endings for nothing. Every daily experience of taste, touch, sight, smell and hearing is a doorway to communion with God. In this session, you will practice the presence of God with props that engage your senses with Spirit!”
Much of Dan Savage’s profanity-laced anti-Catholicism can be found online. In 2012 Savage told a high school journalism convention we can “ignore the bull—- in the Bible” and, when students walked out in protest, called them “pansies.”
At least one person at the march was certainly aware of the nature of Dignity. Homosexual activist priest Father Donal Godfrey, campus minister at the University of San Francisco, was there. In July of 2009, Godfrey himself gave a workshop at Dignity USA’s convention in San Francisco.
Anything supported by Dignity USA or DignitySF is demonic.
Archbishop Cordileone needs much by way of written support, so let’s provide it to him, People!!
excellent sleuthing, admin
None of this changes the fact that 8 out of 10 employees of the subject high schools in the Archdiocese continue to be funded with paychecks for organizing against their employer, whether they hired leather queens to do so or not.
The AB rightly said weeks ago that he is not required to employ persons who work against his mission, or the mission of the church [like “Pepsi would not have to employ a fan of Coke, etc.”].
So then when will the axe fall?
Because if it does not than the whole gambit to require the teachers to support the church’ looks like a fool’s errand with reverse consequences.
Well, duh? When people push contraception, abortion and sodomy why are they surprised that they have NO STUDENTS. It should be a NO BRAINER. The students were smart when they walked out. They know they are dealing with those in the country who would have had no problem killing them in the womb..

If you didn’t know who Dan Savage is until today, it’s probably a good thing. But right now we need you to familiarize yourselves with one of the cruelest, most vile political activists in America.
Why? Because ABC and Disney announced their plans to air a sitcom Dan Savage developed loosely based on his life.
This is a complete disgrace. Watch this Family Research Council video montage of Savage, and you’ll agree:

Sending people to Hell is not the mission of the Catholic Church.

Because of birth control and abortion, there are many, many more deaths each day that births. This is no lie, and I is the truth. Liberalism and modernism is the cause of this tragedy. The ratio is even worse for Catholics. Every day, in the newspaper, I read where several Catholics have died; however, there are no births for the same day, let alone Baptisms. Americans are dying out; no joke.
it looks like people claiming to be Catholics are out in public advocating sin. What other sins do they advocate?
Silly perverts. The church’s mission is to teach Catholicism and rejection of sin, not “Acceptance” of sin.
The Haters want to tell the Church how to hate.
It does not matter whether they do it directly or through community agitators…the truth is that the majority of high school teachers in the Archdiocese are in an open press and protest war against the Archbishop. He said he does not need to employ people who do not support his mission. So how long will he allow it to continue?
The picture displays a number far less than 200. Could it be the opposition is weakening? Or is this just wishful thinking on my part?
As in any workplace, some go along to get along: to avoid friction with colleagues. Now that’s it’s come to the point of signing the contract, it’s another story. Falling on your sword (or pay stub) is not so attractive as waving a sign on camera. Cowardice can cut both ways.
“Beloved: Clothe yourselves with humility in your dealings with one another for God opposes the proud but bestows favor on the humble.” 1 Peter5:5b
Yes, teach acceptance. Teach acceptance of the scripture. Teach humility. Teach respect for the Creator. Teach humility in the face of God’s shepherds.
Let us recall the words of Christ: “He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters.” (Matt 12:30)
The picture was chosen so that it DOESN”T show most of the people in attendance. There were about 300 people there. If the Archdiocese releases the security video they almost certainly have, we could actually count heads, literally.
Surely the protesters have some great wide-angle shots of the crowd with a better idea of the vast number of people and their make up. Any media film crews there? These pictures must have been posted somewhere on the internet along with articles about this event. Perhaps you could direct us to them…
There are very few Sodomites in the USA – approx. 2% of the population, but they are well funded by those who are influenced by or follow Satan.
Sodom by the Sea will never have any births because what is practiced by these people is unnatural.
The Attack is Real – Although the Attackers themselves are Unreal.
“Cal State de-recognizes Christian group for wanting Christian leaders
What a horror. A Christian group at Cal State Stanislaus has the nerve to want a Christian—not a Jew or Muslim—as the leader of their organization. Does this ruling by the outrageous Cal State Stanislaus Associate Vice President Tim Lynch mean that a Jew can be/should be the president of the campus Muslim Student Association?
Why does our confused Governor Brown insist on allowing bigotry on our government college campuses? Our campuses are rife with “tolerance”…
Freedom of association? Another Constitutional right not allowed in California.
Peter Hasson Texas Campus Correspondent, Campus Reform, 3/27/15
Cal State, Stanislaus has de-recognized its chapter of Chi Alpha, a Christian student group, because the group wanted its leaders to be Christian.
The school says the leadership restrictions violate a Cal State University system-wide executive order of non-discrimination.
California State University is no longer recognizing the Cal State Stanislaus chapter of Chi Alpha, a Christian student group, because the religious group required its leaders be Christian.
The system decided this requirement violated a Cal State University system-wide executive order…
“What they cannot be is faith-based where someone has to have a profession of faith to be that leader,” Cal State Stanislaus Associate Vice President Tim Lynch explained.
I will stand up for my Faith regardless of what atheists claim or believe.
The good Archbishop needs our solidarity in prayer right now more than ever. The abominations mentioned in the article are the most extreme perversions of what God intended for man. Yet, these sick people march adamantly and without shame, parading their proclivities to the world. Lord have mercy! Where is their acceptance of God’s Law?
Last night Bill O’Reilly said Christians must stand up for their rights, and do it now. He said the leaders (Catholic and Protestant) have basically been silent while all sorts of anti-Christian measures are being developed by the government. If we do not stand up and fight, we will loose our way of life. Anything worth having is worth fighting for.
The Catholic Bishops have not been silent.
I’m sure the security cameras were operating, and the Cathedral could publish the photos so that we could actually count the number of people there. I have a hard time believing 200, or that there were few students.
The Chron reported “hundreds” were there. And we know they are best buds with the Archbishop, since he spent an hour with their editorial board. That meeting went over so well, the Archbishop had to issue a retraction shortly after they started reporting on it.
YFC, you can not trust the secular San Fran Chronicle to state the truth on anything.
They have a homosexual agenda.
Anyone who supports mortal sin, can not be trusted in any matters of Faith.
Anyone who supports mortal sin, can not be trusted in any matters of Faith.
Yes! Thank you!
While it is possible that someone who supports mortal sin may be correct in another matter of faith, if one does not know the Truth for oneself one should find a different reliable source to verify it.
Mary, did you not read that my post asks for the Cathedral security camera videos to be released so that we can count for ourselves the numbers?
Mary and anonymous, there were a certain countable number of people at that demonstration. It doesn’t matter whether the “source” is in mortal sin or not. Why mortal sin has anything to do with the number of people there is irrelevant The number of attendees is an objective provable fact, and the archdiocese almost certainly has the proof of the correct numbers in its security system.
YFC, my response was to Mary’s post. Sorry I never even read yours.
Counting heads and ages at a demonstration-what is this, the sixties?
No need to speculate. The story tells you where to go: DignitySF: “The entire photo album chronicling Monday’s march, and to which the Concerned Parents page links, is hosted on the Facebook page of DignitySF.”
