Chicago LGBT Community Protests Anti-Gay Catholic Cardinal Francis George
Keeping with an annual tradition of protesting Catholic Cardinal Francis George, LGBT supporters demonstrated outside Holy Name Cathedral Feb. 10.
More than 20 attended the protest, intended to draw attention to George’s anti-gay stances. Protesters marched despite a cold rainy morning as parishioners quietly exited Sunday mass. About a dozen police surrounded the demonstration.
