Chicago Clergy Group: Pro-Gay Pols Will Be Banned From Our Churches

A coalition of Chicago-area Catholic and African-American clergy says they will ban pro-marriage legislators from their churches.
About two dozen priests and pastors joined the Catholic Conference of Illinois to form a new religious coalition yesterday. “We want to make sure that we a send a message to our elected officials that as a collective community and a collaborative, we will not allow you to speak in our churches, you will not be invited to our church when you’re running for office because we as a community are incensed," said Bishop Lance Davis, senior pastor at a church in Dolton, who's part of the group.
The group plans to advertise their decision via billboards and television ads. (Tipped by JMG reader Jake)
