Open Letter to the National LGBT Catholic Community
Posted by: Lez Get Real on November 7, 2012.
On behalf of the Rainbow Sash Movement I wish to thank my fellow LGBT Catholics for voting for President Obama. Not only did we take part in the reelection of the President: we also sent the message that this country is governed by loving and caring people who are more concerned with the fairness of Gay Marriage rather than the promotion of bigotry.
We clearly said that life beyond the wound was as equally important as life within the womb and that women control their own bodies..
Our opposition to the anti gay initiative in Minnesota which attempted to write discrimination into the state constitution was historic. The archdiocese of Minnesota donated upwards of $1 million to ban same-sex marriage. Archbishop Nienstedt tried to promote the lie that Gay Marriage was a redefinition of marriage rather than an evolution of Marriage.
We stood opposed to Maine, Bishop Richard Malone who said of Catholics who support same-sex marriage are “unfaithful to Catholic doctrine.”
