For you from NCR but edited out of special hardcopy edition re Pope's abdication-LGBT Catholics Hope

for Future Papal Dialogue

http://ncronline.org/node/45761/

INDEPENDENT media: The National Catholic Reporter has been on the frontlines within the Catholic Church for social and economic justice and peace activism ever since the build up to the Invasion & Occupation of Iraq.

In the wake of Pope Benedict's resignation announcement Feb. 11, gay and lesbian Catholics reacted with relief and cautious optimism for a pope willing to engage in dialogue.

With the departure of Benedict, DignityUSA, the nation's largest gay and lesbian Catholic organization, called for an end to church statements that "inflict harm on already marginalized people" and depict gay people "as less than fully human."
