Why on earth would Father Leo Tibesar enlist my cooperation?

In the mailbag yesterday:

Father Leo Tibesar cordially requests that you announce this wonderful loving GLBT lecture on your boards, in homilies and in your bulletins and other communication means.

God Bless Always.

After this "invitation," the alleged writer, calling himself "Peter Canisius" (c'mon!) waxes enthusiastic about the author, the book, the joys of "tolerance," yada yada yada.

And, oh, yes, I'm treated to an interview with the authors in which I'm assured, among other things, that Bishop Gumbleton is A Great Guy.

Note to Archbishop Harry Flynn:

With all due respect, Excellency, please try to keep your "pastors" (i.e. Father Leo Tibesar) and your parishes (e.g. Saint Frances Cabrini) in tow...

Failing the ability to that, please at least keep them out of my bleeping mailbox, thank you very much and may God bless you.
