Catholic LGBT group rejected by event pope will attend in Dublin

An organisation representing LGBT Catholics around the world has been denied permission for a stall at the World Meeting of Families in Dublin, which Pope Francis is attending on 25 August.

Ruby Almeida, a co-chair of the GNRC, said she was saddened and frustrated by the decision. I think its the usual thing that goes on the church publicly says its welcoming [to LGBT people and organisations] but pressure is brought to bear on the organisers. We wanted to be able to go and say this is who we are, lets have a conversation.

Another organisation, We Are Church, which campaigns for equality and inclusivity within the Catholic church, has also been denied permission for a stall in the exhibition hall.

Diarmuid Martin, the archbishop of Dublin, has said the WMF welcomes everyone, despite the replacement of five pictures of same-sex couples with traditional families in WMF leaflets in January.

1. The Pope himself has been open to meeting these groups

 

Once again the local assholes have their own agenda.

2. Maybe the pope is the head of an authoritarian hierarchical

organization or something?

4. "If only Stalin knew..."

We've been down this road before. "Comrade Stalin, I am writing to tell you of a terrible wrong..."

3. This group, Log Cabin Republicans and similar LGBT groups ---

Why would you want to be accepted by an organization that hates you?
