I am the new pastor,’ Costello added. ‘There is a new archbishop. The archdiocese told me straight out, ‘No drag queens.'”

There’s a new Sheriff in town.

You would think this might be one item of something you didn’t have to be told. Oh by the way No drag queens.’ – who knew?

This of course is in reference to the infamous Most Holy Redeemer Parish in San Francisco where Castro Country Club has had drag queen events and drag queens dressed up as Nuns come up for Communion.

I would hope the new policy also means “No Sex Toy Bingo” something that has also been held in the parish. Though since “No Drag Queens” had to be spelled out maybe they will have to create a long list of things not to be done since common sense has not prevailed in the past.

Costello said that during a telephone conversation with a Castro Country Club representative, when the topic of drag queens came up, he told the person, ‘That is not going to work under the present circumstances.’

I hope that wasn’t an actual quote.  Regardless this is not an easy situation for Father Costello (who missed his calling as an Abbot) and he certainly needs prayer support.

  1. ha ha ha, how would I ever find these thigns out without your blog???

  2. Even in context it makes no sense that it should ever have to be uttered. That it has had to have been uttered is unutterably sad.

  3. I have to second Sean, outside of a women’s only gym, it’s hard to think of a context where “No Drag Queens” does make sense, and doesn’t spark a lawsuit. Even Judge Judy isn’t going allow this one.
    “No Sex Toy Bingo” is going to leave me with a terminal case of the snickers.
