Good Friday first, home opener second

Good Friday first, home opener second

The headline says “Church bans Fenway franks.” That was emblazoned across the front page of the Boston Herald this morning. Unfortunately for the editors, that’s not what happened. Here’s the real story: The Boston Red Sox scheduled their home opener for April 9, which is Good Friday. Of course, as we all know, Catholics are obliged to fast and abstain from meat on Good Friday. Well, some people have been asking the Archdiocese of Boston for a dispensation and Archbishop O’Malley ishate them, if they think they are wrong. And he brings up the correct point that the Church calls us to love and convert homosexuals not to spew hatred at them.
