Fr. Jonathan Morris, a Catholic priest and Fox News contributor, was reportedly spat on while walking down the street during New York City's Pride festivities.
Walking down Broadway and 22nd St just now, I ran into gay marriage parade. Two men walked by and spat on me. Oh well... I deserve worse.— Fr. Jonathan Morris (@fatherjonathan) June 28, 2015
The two men who spat on me are probably very good man caught up in excitement and past resentment. Most in that parade would not do that.— Fr. Jonathan Morris (@fatherjonathan) June 28, 2015
To Fr. Morris' credit, he was far more gracious and forgiving than I would have been after just being spat on. He's right--most people attending Pride would never think of spitting on anyone.
And this is not to condemn or judge the activities of various Pride festivities and attendees throughout the nation, but spitting on people is gross and is never acceptable behavior by anyone--regardless of the political views of the spitter or the person being spat on.
