  • Chicago Archbishop Blase Cupich is asking Roman Catholics to show compassion toward gay people after the U.S. Supreme Court decided last Friday to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide. Welcome to the modern world, Cupich? [Crain's]

  • Mayor Emanuel is rejecting Gov. Bruce Rauner's $450 million advance in state funds to help the CPS make a $634 million pension payment. [Tribune]

  • A woman and a small white dog allegedly stole a cab driver's taxi in Park Ridge after the driver left his car running and went inside a Dunkin' Donuts to buy the woman a cup of coffee. [Tribune]

  • Video of two Chicago police officers playing football with children on the streets of North Lawndale have become a viral hit online. [DNAinfo]

  • A photo posted on Reddit of a man at Chicago's Pride Parade this past weekend wearing a very "festive" outfit while a child looks on in fear/amusement/confusion/boredom grabbed the attention of a few homophobic commenters (surprise, it's Reddit). Until a much more tolerant commenter, who clearly did their research, pointed out that the man in the photo is actually straight and well-known for loving strange, Internet attention. Word of the wise: don't click on the photo that is linked if you are not in the correct setting where it would be alright for a massive black dildo to pop up on your screen. You've been warned.
