Creative Minority Report has a story on an openly gay choir director who was fired from a Catholic parish.
I have just received word about a similar situation in the troubled parish of Our Lady of Lourdes in Massapequa Park, Long Island. Peter Rapanaro, the new choir director was the director of the play, "My Big Gay Italian Wedding," the off-Broadway production which Rapanaro directed in 2003, revolves around two gay men, one Italian and the other Polish, who get married in a Catholic church with a priest upon the insistence of the Italian mother, and is replete with pedophile priest jokes, references to sodomite sex, and vile language.
9/24 UPDATE since I've become the target of hateful emails. The comments in blue are from the website "Modern Priest" and do not necessarily relflect my opinion I will state, however that Peter Rapanaro is in no way appropriate to work anywhere near a Catholic Church on the basis of his play production, "My Big Gay Italian Wedding" which you can view scenes from on YouTube through this link. Warning: the video contents are sexually explicit. I stopped watching it in disgust.
There are no words to express my sorrow at this outrage. . .
