Archdiocese of Chicago Supports Gay Games VII Religious Roundtable

Jul 13, 2006, 01:00 ET from Rainbow Sash Movement

    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
