Catholic LGBT group rejected by event pope will attend in Dublin [View all]

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.

So...they hate, and they lie. Same old church.
