Tell San Antonio Archdiocese: Respect LGBT Catholic Voices – Sign the Petition, today!!!
DignityUSA, the nation’s largest organization of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Catholics and our supporters, is shocked and saddened by the actions of San Antonio Auxiliary Bishop Oscar Cantu, who ordered a local parish to stop hosting a weekly Mass for gay and transgender Catholics and their families. The letter, dated October 13, 2010, ordered the liturgies to end as of October 18, 2010.
In response to Equality Across America’s call to action ( www.eaatexas.org ), DANSA is working with organizers across the state to make this event possible in San Antonio.
