CWN Editor's Note: Mayor Justin Bibb of Cleveland denounced the Diocese of Cleveland’s newly announced policy on sexuality, gender, and identity.

“As a Christian, the new Catholic Diocese of Cleveland anti-LGBTQ+ policy is a shocking betrayal of the church teachings that have shaped who I am today,” he said. “For me, faith is about universal love and acceptance. Instead, the new policy forces LGBTQ+ kids to hide their authentic selves and attend school in fear of persecution for who they are.”

“I extend my heartfelt solidarity to our LGBTQ+ friends and students,” he added. “Rest assured that this policy, along with any expressions of hatred, doesn’t go unnoticed.”
