CWN Editor's Note: The secretary-general of the Synod of Bishops has said that the Synod on Synodality should promote “unity in difference” within the Church.

“When we speak of unity, of communion, we are not referring to uniformity of thought,” said Cardinal Mario Grech. “I always imagine the Church as a rainbow, with the colors that are not excluded but, together, create harmony.”

    Things don't work that way. When the rainbow mafia takes over, everyone who is not gay or gay friendly (a.k.a. "homophobic") gets excluded without mercy. The writings of Fr. Dariusz Oko and the book "Goodbye, Good Men" by Michael S. Rose describe the process in detail.
