CWN Editor's Note: Homosexual activists rallied in Rhode Island to protest the statement by Bishop Thomas Tobin that Catholics should not participate in Gay Pride events. Mayor Jorge Elorza of Providence issued a statement that the city “is a place where all people are welcome to celebrate Pride this month.” Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo said that the “LGBTQ community has made countless contributions to our state that we celebrate not only during Pride Month but every day of the year.” Responding to the protests, Bishop Tobin said that he was sorry his statements had caused controversy, and “will be praying for a rebirth of mutual understanding.”

    First they ruin the rainbow. Then the Supreme court helps them ruin marriage. Now they're ruining a calendar month. Already tired of seeing local news coverage of a few dozen QWERTYs celebrating. How am I supposed to understand sin written into law let alone aim for mutual understanding.
