So which team is Mahony on? Pope Benedict's or the militant homosexuals? You decide.
From the Rainbow Sashers' website:
"In the Archdiocese of Los Angeles warm welcome was given the members of the Rainbow Sash Movement who entered Our Lady of the Angels Cathedral, because of this warm welcome members decided not to wear their Rainbow Sashes."
From a Rainbow Sashers' news release dated May 2, 2005:
"For many gay men and lesbians the name Joseph Ratzinger means aggressive homophobe."
"We hope that our presence will also counter the lies that Pope Benedict XVI is promoting about our community. We are Catholic, and will raise our voices to speak to the truth of our lives from the pews. We will no longer be silent in the face of this injustice."
