Illinois Catholic citizens group calls for homosexual activist who called Cardinal ‘bigot’ to be removed from anti-hate commission

.- The group, Catholic Citizens of Illinois, are calling on Governor Rod Blagojevich to remove homosexual activist Rick Garcia from the Governor’s Commission Against Discrimination and Hate Crimes because of what they see as his own hate-filled agenda.

Garcia recently called Chicago’s Francis Cardinal George a “bigot” for his, and the Catholic Church’s stance against homosexual marriage and the practice of homosexuality.

Mary Anne Hacket, president of Catholic Citizens of Illinois, said that “We are offended by Garcia’s frequent attacks on the Catholic Church and all Christians for their belief in biblical values.”

She added the group’s disdain for “his attacks on the Illinois Family Institute which has been effective in the defense of marriage and efforts to place a referendum on the ballot to define marriage in Illinois as a union between one man and one woman.”

“The type of hatred Rich Garcia spouts on a regular basis”, Hacket charged, “has no place on a commission financed by the taxpayers and he must be removed from the Commission at once.”
