If We Out D.C.'s Gay Catholic Priests, Will the Church Stop Railing Against Marriage? / Queerty

If We Out D.C.'s Gay Catholic Priests, Will the Church Stop Railing Against Marriage? / Queerty:
"As the Catholic thought police tried — and, miserably, failed — to prove same-sex marriage in the nation's capital would somehow make their religious teachings a hate crime, one smart alec has gone and created a website that's one part WhoSigned.org, and 10 parts Blog Active. That is: A public registry of any Catholic priest belonging to the Archdiocese of Washington who is a big homo. Or, involved in a seedy hetero affair when he should be celibate.

ChurchOuting.org and its creator Phil Attey (an HRC veteran) is calling for crowd sourced knowledge of any D.C.-area Catholic clergy who might be violating their promises to Jesus. 'This site is dedicated to every Catholic family who has lost a loved one to suicide or disassociation, needlessly caused by the spiritual pain inflicted by the church hierarchy's relentless attacks on LGBT people,' the website writes. 'Secondly, this site is dedicated to every Catholic of faith who is willing to stand up to the Vatican and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops on this important issue. Know that your courage and conviction will be rewarded in Heaven.'"

Great job, Phil Attey!
