Christmas got ruined at St. Victor's Catholic Church in West Hollywood
is a conservative Catholic church which preaches anti-Gay marriage dogma in the middle of West Hollywood, California. Fruitopia! The church predates the city of West Hollywood which now surrounds it (although the original wooden structure was replaced in 1960 with the present, larger church.)
Msgr. John J. Devlin, the pastor of St. Victor's from 1929-1976, served as the head of the Legion of Decency, the organization that the was the precursor to the modern rating system. When public outcry over increasing sex and violence in the movies threatened to bring government censorship down on their heads, the motion picture industry turned to the Legion of Decency for an early, voluntary ratings system Homosexuals you see entering this church may be very closeted and self loathing inside even when they are totally out! Others come because it is Christmas and they are taking their parents. Some arrive for the music. Too bad.
They all get some Angry Gay Pope! Especially abusive George and his homophobic friend Marjorie, Esquire. Of course I shut up when it is show time. It's against the law in California to interrupt a religious service.
In other showbiz news, Ronald Reagan's father's funeral was held here and the private prep school next door boasts Monica Lewinsky as a graduate. It was once a Catholic school but now St. Victor's leases it out.
