The Vatican Is Warning Catholic Priests Not To Offend Gay Worshippers

In a story that has not been widely reported by the mainstream media, the Vatican has issued a warning to Catholic priests against using language that might "offend" gay and lesbian worshipers.

In a stunning memo, Catholic bishops are telling priests not to assume that every person attending their services is a heterosexual. This represents a fundamental change on the part of the Catholic organization.

Catholic priests are also being encouraged to put up posters advertising "support services" for homosexuals, and to do whatever they can to make them feel welcome.

English gay rights activist Peter Tatchell said the following about this memo:

"It's sympathetic, understanding message is a big improvement on the past homophobia of some Catholic pronouncements on homosexuality."

What do you all think about this change by the Catholics? Feel free to leave a comment below.
