MANHATTAN, June 29, 2015 (ChurchMilitant.com) - A Catholic church in New York City draped its altar steps with the rainbow flag this weekend.
Saint Francis Xavier, known as a bastion for gay Catholics, laid out the banner in celebration of gay pride festivities that took place over the weekend. The parish has a reputation for gay activism, with members regularly marching in the city’s gay pride parade.
The photo was posted on the parish’s Facebook page on June 27, the day right after the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its revolutionary decision legalizing same-sex “marriage” in all 50 states.
