Mayor Daley Dedicates $65 mil Center for Gays, Lesbians, and Cross-Dressers

From "New Gay and Lesbian Center Will Be Haven for All" by Joanie Lum, posted 6/4/07 at cbs2chicago.com

Mayor Richard M. Daley was scheduled to cut the ribbon on a new, state of the art facility for the gay and lesbian community Tuesday. CBS 2’s Joanie Lum got a first look at the modern, multi-million dollar facility.

If the new Center on Halsted, at 3656 N. Halsted St., seems expansive, it’s because everyone is accepted here, gay or straight. The 65,000-square-foot building is the most comprehensive facility in the country supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, also known as the LGBT community.

The center offers classes, therapy and advice on how to deal with discrimination.

Fabulous. Classes in how sue anyone who objects to your behavior...

The faculty also has plenty of room for fun – from the full size gym named after tennis great Billie Jean King to the Richard M. Daley roof garden.

"We have screens that drop down for movie night or Monday night football,” he said.

And there’s a 170-seat theater, fully outfitted.

When it’s finished, they hope their big green open lobby will be a social gathering place for anyone who wants to learn about the LGBT community and what is offered here at Center on Halsted.

In other words, Mayor Daley has officially endorsed a $65 million monument dedicated to affirming homosexual behavior and cross-dressing.

I've got a few questions:

1. Who is paying for all this? (Of course this is merely a rhetorical question. We all know...)

2. Why is Roman Catholic mayor publicly encouraging behavior that God has condemned?

3. Will Mayor Daley still receive Communion this Sunday OR will he receive church discipline, as he should?

If you are a faithful Catholic, please contact Cardinal George and respectfully encourage him to stand up for righteousness and be a "teacher, leader, and pastor" (as he is described on the archdiocese website) by calling the mayor to account.
