CHICAGO, July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- In a stunning gesture of good faith the Archdiocese of Chicago seems to be rethinking its relationship with the Gay and Lesbian Community. The Archdiocesan Gay and Lesbian Outreach Ministry (AGLO) has added its name to the sponsorship list of the "Faith and Fairness" religious roundtable to be held July 16, 2006 at the Chicago Cultural Center. Gay Games VII will be coming to Chicago July 15, through July 22, 2006. Both the Human Rights Campaign Fund, a national GLBT Rights lobbying organization, and Gay Games VII will be sponsoring the "Faith and Fairness" religious roundtable. When the Rainbow Sash Movement (GLBT Catholics) contacted the AGLO to verify their sponsorship they were informed that it was published in their News Letter the "Blaze" which is routinely monitored by the Archdiocese. The Rainbow Sash Movement applauds Cardinal Francis George for allowing an official Ministry of the Archdiocese to be involved in the religious Round Table. We are very hopeful that this gesture is the first step in the journey of developing a better relationship with Chicago's Gay and Lesbian Community.
