Flashback: Protesters Harass Churchgoers at Holy Name Cathedral

The city of Chicago ordered its police force not to enforce the law against a mob of homosexualist activists who disrupted Mass at the Holy Name Cathedral to protest “anti-gay bigots” who support the Church’s teaching on marriage.

The Gay Liberation Network staged the rally on the eve of Valentine’s Day, shouting and chanting loudly as churchgoers entered to celebrate Sunday Mass. The demonstration’s primary target was Cardinal Francis George of Chicago, who has spoken out in defense of traditional marriage between a man and a woman. Protesters had staged a similar disruption around the same time last year.

In response to the protest, George, who was not present at the cathedral, acknowledged that the issue is deeply emotional on both sides but, “No matter the issue, Catholics should be able to worship in peace, without fear of harassment.”

    Catholics are “anti-gay bigots” but homosexuals who defile the Mass in progress aren’t “anti-Catholic bigots.” The media has completely bought into the celebration of sodomy and the demonization of Catholics and Christians. Imagine those Catholics — defending the teachings of their church!

    The ever liberal Rich Miller of “Capitol Fax” challenged persons commenting at his blog to produce evidence that gay activists had ever interrupted Catholic church services in Chicago.

    When an accurate reference was made to the Easter Sunday demonstration at which worshippers were pelted with fake blood, Miller dismissed this as simply an “anti-war protest.” When confronted with facts that gay activists actually organized the “Catholic School Girls Against the War” hoax, Kevin Clark, being the most proment prominent queer militant involved in staging the bigoted travesty, Miller promptly deleted the post like something consigned to the “memory hole” in George Orwell’s “1984.”

  • Pat Hickey said:

    Rich Miller, as my dear Great Old Aunt Nellie O’Shea might say of him, is the “shakin’s of the bag.”
