CHICAGO, Aug. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Rainbow Sash Movement is calling on its entire membership across the nation, along with its allies and the Chicago LGBT Community to hold Cardinal Francis George in your prayers. Joe Murray the Executive Director of the Rainbow Sash Movement said "the Cardinal has been diagnosed with another bout of cancer. While at times we have been on opposite sides of the fence when it comes to the issues of women's and LGBT rights we recognize this as a time of deep personal concern for not only the Cardinal but also for his family, loved ones, friends and the entire Archdiocese of Chicago. Our prayers are with Cardinal George and his loved ones as he takes another step in the journey with this disease that touches so many in our society. This is not a time to focus on our divisions, but rather our compassion for one another as children of God."
