Stay Out Of Our Churches Chicago Cardinal Tells Gays
by Steph Smith Newscenter

(Chicago, Illinois) Chicago's Cardinal Francis George has a simple message for a gay Catholic group that plans on attending mass this Sunday at Holy Name Cathedral: Don't bother showing up."

Members of the Rainbow Sash Movement announced plans this week to attend mass wearing their distinctive rainbow sashes.

In a memo to all pastors in the Archdiocese Cardinal George said anyone wearing the sash is to be denied communion.

"The policy of the U.S. Council of Bishops is not to give Communion to those wearing the sash," he told priests.
