Rainbow Sash Movement (RSM) Calls for Prayers for the Passage of Gay Marriage in Illinois

The LGBT Community in the state of Illinois faces the very real question of justice in the form of Marriage Equality legislation. Presently that legislation is stalled in Illinois House of Representatives. We are asking for prayers from the various Catholic parishes across state, on March 24th the anniversary of the assassination of Archbishop Oscar Arnulfo Romero, a prominent human rights defender who was murdered during the Salvadorean civil war, for the passage of this legislation.

We believe our allegiances cannot be divided between the Gospels and Gay Marriage. We understand there is no gospel apart from the Good News proclaimed to the LGBT Community in need of Justice and fairness, and the Gospel proclaimed to other groups in need of liberation.

Here is a link if you wish to find out more about Archbishop Romero’s death on the altar of hate. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=21CN815v2G0#!.
