ATLANTA, Georgia – A Roman Catholic priest – who happens to be appointed as “spiritual director for victims of sexual abuse by clergy” recently attended a drag show and LGBT film festival that would make Karen Swallow Prior blush.
Monsignor Henry Gracz is the pastor of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Atlanta, which is commonly known as a “gay parish.” Gracz regularly attends “outreach booths” at LGBT events (including the Atlanta Pride event that Pulpit & Pen open air evangelism team preached at last year) and his social media shows that he frequents Atlanta’s “queer subculture.” He also sponsors potlucks for homosexual couples to fellowship with other homosexual couples.
Gracz’s parish maintains a “Pride Outreach,” including running a booth at Atlanta’s gay pride week each year, and sponsors LGBT couples potluck socials, which are “for LGBT couples who are in committed relationships for couple support by providing a venue for socializing with other LGBT couples,” according to the parish website.
As reported by Lifesite News, in an August 1 Facebook post, Msgr. Gracz announced he was celebrating with friends at “Lips,” a popular Atlanta drag bar. Readers grabbed the screenshots before his account went private and posts deleted.
The club hosts a show called “Taboo: The Forbidden Show” and is advertised on the “Lips” website as “dirty and nasty” and is hosted by a “mistress of seduction.” The website (which we will not link) reads, The Taboo Show is our dirty late-night show. 21 +… if you can’t handle dirty and nasty… STAY HOME!
Gracz can be seen sitting at the drag bar in one photo taken by friends at the August 1 event. His Facebook settings apparently allowed his friends to tag him in photos, and one tagged him in these photos while present at the gay club. After several hours of revelry, apparently, Gracz saw what had happened and made his page private.
Keep in mind, this priest is designated to handle sex abuse by the Roman Catholic church in the Atlanta area.
