Rainbow Sashayers Seek Audience with Bishops

The Rainbow Sash Movement (National Organization of Gay and Lesbian Catholics) is planning to send a delegation to the USCCB's fall meeting in November. They also plan to attend the Plenary Liturgy at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception.

The truffle quote from their press release is this little bit of self-delusion:

Over the years the Rainbow Sash Movement (RSM) Delegation has been denied the Holy Eucharist, we believe this has happened because of miscommunication. We have listened first to Cardinal Francis George of Chicago, then to Archbishop Harry Flynn of Minneapolis/St. Paul as they spoke of protest and the Rainbow Sash Movement. We also understand people of good will can look at the same act and see two different things. We are certainly willing to seek common ground, but only the Bishops can make that decision. Murray said, "We believe it is time to focus on the Lord and seek common ground with our bishops. We believe our Bishops are called to be more than they are in relationship to GLBT Catholics and the Gay Community, and we believe Christ is calling us to be more than we are in relationship to our bishops."
I don't think we can expect to see them approaching the table in humility and reconciliation anytime soon.
