The Catholic archdiocese of Chicago is commemorating Good Friday by showcasing a lesbian and Protestants.
At noon today, the archdiocese's website will air the Stations of the Cross, featuring Catholic clergy as well as Protestant ministers — and notably, Chicago's lesbian mayor Lori Lightfoot — among others.
The people participating in the Stations submitted video clips to the archdiocese, and archdiocesan staff pieced together the final video.
Chicago Cdl. Blase Cupich explained in a recent interview with the press, "We're just trying to get people to focus on being together by praying together. ... I think we can build unity throughout the city."
Cupich was one of the first bishops in the country to suspend public liturgies in response to the threat of the Wuhan virus.
Earlier this week, Cupich announced that he was lifting the Easter obligations of Catholics in his archdiocese to confess their sins and receive Holy Communion at least once a year around Easter-time.
Cupich is known for his heterodoxy, and departure from various Catholic principles. For instance, he has supported giving Holy Communion to pro-abortion politicians, as well as open homosexual couples.
Now, some Catholics feel the mingling of Our Lord's death on the Cross with Protestantism and lesbianism is just more of the same from the Chicago cardinal.
