Bishops Who Don't Deny Communion

To gay activists...

They plan on presenting themselves at the Mass on Monday.

From The Rainbow Sash Movement: Gay Catholics Act Up with the National Council of Catholic Bishops:

"Earlier this year Cardinal Francis George of the Archdiocese of Chicago made international news for denying RSM members and their supporters Holy Communion at his Cathedral. Like Cardinal George of Chicago, Cardinal McCarrick will only bring more scandal to a scandal ridden church.

However, there is division on this matter among the bishops: Archbishop Harry Flynn (Minneapolis/St Paul, MN), Cardinal Roger Mahony (Los Angeles, CA), Bishop Mathew Clark (Rochester, NY), have welcomed RSM members to Holy Communion this past year. Additionally, Bishop Thomas J. Gumbleton (Detroit) has supported our call for inclusion."
