In the wake of the Supreme Court supporting nationwide legalization of same-sex marriage, Fox News contributor and Catholic priest Father Jonathan Morris said he got spit on by a couple of advocates.
Walking down Broadway and 22nd St just now, I ran into gay marriage parade. Two men walked by and spat on me. Oh well… I deserve worse.

As if that wasn’t horrible enough, same-sex marriage advocates then criticized him for being a bigot, and a liar for his claim of being spat upon.
@fatherjonathan Of course you will have some form of proof that your spitting story is true. And not just more of your usual gaybashing.

@fatherjonathan The only thing wrong is your inability to accept any event that does not conform to your worldview. That's your problem

So much for “tolerance” from some of the same people who advocate for tolerance. Apparently, if you simply disagree with an issue, you’re labeled a bigot, homophobe, or racist.
I haven’t met Fr. Jonathan Morris, but I do know from watching him on Fox News that he is a loving, trustworthy, and sincere Catholic priest who would not make up such an accusation. What happened to him was horrendous and should never happen to anyone.
Are you disgusted with what happened? Let us know on Facebook and Twitter.
