Bill Donohue comments on a "Black Mass"
performance at the Oklahoma City
that is scheduled for September 21:
On the website of the "Black Mass" it says, "The consecrated host is corrupted by sexual fluids then it becomes the sacrifice of the mass. The blasphemy remains intact along with corruption of the Catholic Mass." It is scheduled to be performed by Adam Daniels, a registered sex offender.
Oklahoma City is setting itself up for a lawsuit. In 1984, in Lynch v. Donnelly, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Warren Burger explicitly said that the Constitution "affirmatively mandates accommodation, not merely tolerance, of all religions, and forbids hostility toward any." (My italics.) If a "Black Mass," whose sole purpose is to show hostility toward Catholicism, does not meet Burger's dictum, then it has no meaning.
