Fr. Jonathan Morris is likely a familiar face to readers of TheBlaze — the Catholic priest based in the Bronx also has been a longtime analyst for Fox News.
Morris said he was walking Sunday in the vicinity of Broadway and 22nd Street in Manhattan and happened upon a gay pride parade.

Two men spat on him as they walked by, he said.
Morris' response? "Oh well... I deserve worse."
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
But Morris went even further:
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
He noted that the men who spat on him are likely "very good" individuals who were probably "caught up in excitement and past resentment. Most in that parade would not do that."
