Thread Name: 'Danny Boy' at Catholic funeral
Subject: RE: 'Danny Boy' at Catholic funeral
Well, I do go to Catholic mass and one of the issues I do have with the church is how awful the music is. I also cringe at the thought that the very same people (perhaps) who covered up the abuse scandales, allowed the priests to keep serving, etc. etc. are the same ones who forbid the singing of Danny Boy. Not that I usually mind hypocracy, and I do believe it serves a societal purpuse, but this is too much.   And I don't think many people expect it to be in the mass itself, only like on the way out. mg
