Reverend Warren Hall Comes Out

The Reverend Warren Hall, who worked at Seton Hall University until he posted an image of himself with the NOH8 logo on his cheek to his Facebook page and was fired by Archbishop John Myers, has another announcement:

He’s gay.
“I have to be myself. I can’t worry what other people think.”
Hall believes another priest saw the image on Hall’s personal Facebook page ... Hall says it was a response to a lecture on bullying and hate ... and alerted university and archdiocesan officials; Hall says he was called in to explain the post, first by the university and then by the archdiocese, and agreed to delete it from his page. He thought that would be the end of it, but then five months later he was fired from the school by Archbishop Myers, who told him:
“None of us want bullying, but you have a further agenda here, and I can’t have you at Seton Hall because of that.”
The Reverend Hall said that in the past year a few people had learned of his sexual orientation but now, especially in light of his dismissal, he wanted to be completely open:
“The best way to live is to live honestly. Honesty with oneself is the most important thing, but you have to be honest with other people. I’m not afraid of those questions anymore.”
Welcome out, Father, welcome out. And please accept as our gift to you, from HOMO HQ, a copy of The Gay Agenda and the Obligatory Coming Out Toaster Oven.

And, again, Welcome out.

The air is so much better out of the closet. Take a deep breath, Warren, and smile.

I wonder whether the Archbishop ever explained what he thought Hall's "other agenda" was?

Getting fired for indicating that one supports a 'No Hate' slogan just about says it all.
