The congregation of St. Victor’s Church in West Hollywood was met with both sides of the argument on Proposition 8. The Church is hosting Yes on Prop 8 tables at both the street and parking lot entrance. This church, which boasts its inclusiveness and diversity on its web site, is actively recruting parishioners to vote for discrimination. In fact, the Sunday bulletin included a one-page insert on the measure sponsored by the California Catholic Conference. Many members were surprised to see the church taking such an active stance on a political issue. Separation of Church and State? I think not.
Standing in front of the church making sure that the Equality for All side was represented we were welcome with only positive feedback, some waves of support, and a few thumbs up by passersby and parishioners alike. Within 24 hours of our first posting signs were posted around West Hollywood asking the community for a boycott of St. Victor’s and their discriminatory practices.
