Members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender activist community of the Bay Area upset over recent bigoted remarks and policies promulgated by San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone will gather outside St. Mary's Cathedral on Saturday, Feb. 21 at 10 am to condemn the homophobia of the Catholic Church.
We are gravely displeased the conservative Cordileone this week implemented morality clauses in a faculty handbook for archdiocesan school teachers that demonizes LGBT people, extramarital sex, masturbation and erotic materials.
The date and time of February 21 at 10 AM for our peaceful picket outside St. Mary's was chosen because that is when Cordileone will be celebrating a mass for heterosexual married couples marking 5-year anniversaries.
On the public sidewalk in front of the cathedral at Geary and Gough Streets, we will express our genuine fabulousness as proud LGBT people, stage a kiss-in, sing our anthem "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and wave an enormous rainbow flag.
All persons unhappy with the San Francisco Archdiocese's discriminatory actions and words are invited to join the protest. More details to be provided later. Please share this info on social media.
