2004_6_gaychurch.jpgDoing their bit to make the whole Church-State, Gay-Not-Gay, Don’t-Ask-Don’t-Tell, Queer-Eye-For-The-Straight-Catholic debate a little bit more confusing, members of the Rainbow Sash Movement showed up at Holy Name Cathedral on Sunday, wearing rainbow sashes to display their sexual orientation, and were then denied communion. Despite a warning from Cardinal Francis George that just this thing would happen, the Sash Folks decided to go anyway. At this point Chicagoist would make a joke, but religion and politics makes this topic into the third rail of all possible topics. Scary.
