Protest attracts no demonstrators

A PLANNED PROTEST by gay rights campaigners at Westminster Cathedral on Sunday proved to be less effective than hoped when no protestors turned up.

The Pentecost protest was organised by the US-based gay Catholic group Rainbow Sash. It called on members to turn up at the 10.30am Mass, wearing a sash “during the Sacred Liturgy as a symbol of self identification” and indicating “that the wearer is a Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Ally”. The group declared Pentecost “a time to celebrate our diversity as a people of faith with honesty”.

“Participation does not require membership in the Rainbow Sash Movement or that you need to be of the Catholic faith. Non-Catholics are encouraged to join us in this celebration,” said a spokesman.

But a Church spokesman said: “Security have confirmed that they did not see anyone wearing a sash enter the Cathedral on Sunday.”
