'Pope a homophobe' say 'Christian' gay activists

Action: letters, please. This banner is from the Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement site; a longer version appeared on the site dedicated to their conference at which Martin Pendergast read out a statement condemning British church leaders for opposing the Sexual Orientation Regulations.

This incitement to hatred is not, of course, against any law, unlike the things which might be said about the people who created it. The list of conference sponsors and supporters, includes:

The Home Office, The London Borough of Tower Hamlets, Russell Jones & Walker Solicitors, BT OpenReach, Amicus, Communication Workers Union (CWU), Reed Smith Richards Butler Attorneys; the Trades Union Congress (TUC), Tooks Chambers, The British Humanist Association, Student Christian Movement, Christian Socialist Movement, The General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches, Liberal Democrat Youth and Students, British Institute of Human Rights, Amnesty International.

Martin Pendergast is a founder of the Roman Catholic Caucus of the Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement and its off-shoot, the Soho Masses Pastoral Council. Into the hands of these organisations the Archdiocese has apparently sub-contracted the pastoral care of homosexual Catholics, who are ministered to at special Masses in Our Lady of the Assumption, Warwick Street, with a special diet of dissenting priests and books and adverts for the events of the gay subculture such as the Gay Pride march. This outrage must cease: if you love your fellow Catholics regardless of sexuality, and don't want one section of them to be cordoned off and told a pack of lies about the teaching of the Church, write to Cardinal Murphy-O'Connor and Cardinal Levada of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith. These Masses must be stopped.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
