A ranking U.S. cardinal has invited LGBT Catholics to dialogue, saying he wants to “know more about what’s happening in their life.”
Cardinal Blase Cupich, the archbishop of Chicago, made his comments during a lecture for the Catholic Common Ground Initiative delivered last Friday. According to the National Catholic Reporter:
“Cupich said he also has invited LGBT Catholics to come talk with him as part of his own desire for dialogue. ‘I want to know more about what’s happening in their life,’ he said, adding that church language can dehumanize gay and lesbian people.
“‘They feel alienated,’ he said, noting the high suicide rate among LGBT youth. ‘The church has to step forward and talk to people.’”
