A Catholic Bishop has faced criticism and condemnation for warning Catholics not to attend Pride events

The tweet came as LGBT+ Pride Month kicked off in the US. As well as telling Catholics not to attend, Bishop Thomas Tobin warned them that Pride events are dangerous for children.

People were quick to point out the hypocrisy in the tweet, reminding the Bishop of the numerous Catholic Church sexual abuse scandals involving young children.

Given the Bishop's tweet appeared at the start of Pride month, Twitter did not hold back.
