Gay rights activists cancel Holy Name protest

The head of the Rainbow Sash Movement called Sunday on gay rights activists to cancel a planned protest outside Holy Name Cathedral.

The Gay Liberation Network had said it would not cancel its protest even though Francis Cardinal George apologized for linking Chicago's gay pride parade to the Ku Klux Klan.

The cardinal made the comment while referring to the Pride Parade possibly blocking access to a church Mass.

On Thursday, the cardinal apologized while calling his words inflammatory and untrue.
