Countering Bigotry in Church Leadership

Chicago’s Cardinal George recently got himself in hot water by comparing gay rights demonstrators to the KKK, then defending that comment on at least two occasions subsequently, before finally saying “sorry” in a short note posted on the Archdiocesan website.

Joe Murray of the Catholic LGBT organization Rainbow Sash and Bob Schwartz of the Gay Liberation Network discuss their different takes on George’s apology and how the church leadership has ranged itself against LGBT and women’s rights.
