Statement from Joe Murray, Executive Director of the Rainbow Sash Movement

I read the Cardinal’s Apology on the Chicago Archdiocesan web site. The Cardinal spoke directly to us in sincere language. Our Board of the Directors has instructed me to immediately call for a cancellation of planned demonstration outside of the Cathedral on Sunday. We got what we ask for and that was an apology. I will be in communication with the Gay Liberation Network requesting that they also honor our call to cancel demonstration.

I want to thank the Cardinal for his sincere words, and ask the Chicago Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgender community to receive this apology as a sincere attempt at reconciliation. I believe we can now put this matter behind us.
