Nation: Priests protest language on gays:

"A principal drafter of the letter, Fr. Richard Prendergast, pastor of a suburban parish, said he was moved to take action in part by the experience of a lesbian couple in his parish. They had adopted a baby from an orphanage in a foreign country. She was considered developmentally impaired when she arrived in the United States. Prendergast said that now, 18 months later, the couple has “loved her back to a normal level” of development. “To call their loving of that child an abomination is outrageous,” he said."

And maybe he'd like to point out where the Church has said that? The only abomination present seems to be Fr. Predergast engaging in calumny.
