I’ve just learned of the burning of the LGBTQ pride flag at the Trinity Cathedral Saturday morning.
I condemn this act of hatred, and pray for the person responsible. While the monetary value of the flag is minimal, the symbolism of the act is immense. The Pride flag is a symbol of love, of struggle, of sacrifice, by generations of our brothers and sisters.
I realize that not all are accepting of our LGBTQ neighbors, but we should all be united in condemning this act. Christ calls us to show love and respect to our neighbors.
The Sacramento Police Department has been contacted, and is investigating the crime.
