Homosexual activists protest at Chicago cathedral; Cardinal George responds

Catholic World News - February 14, 2011

Some 60 homosexual activists picketed outside Holy Name Cathedral on February 13. “If we’re going to win marriage equality within this state, we’ll have to be out in the streets like we are today,” said the cofounder of the Gay Liberation Network.

“Some members of the Gay Liberation Network demonstrated in front of Holy Name Cathedral on Sunday, February 13, protesting against Catholic Church teaching on the immorality of homosexual genital relations and opposition to so called ‘gay marriage,’” Cardinal Francis George said in response. “These are deeply felt issues, because they speak to the personal identity of some and to the religious beliefs of others.”

“No matter the issue, Catholics should be able to worship in peace, without fear of harassment,” he continued. “An open display of prejudice against the Catholic Church because of resentment of Church teachings prejudices civil discourse in our society.”
