Cardinal Francis George, Archbishop of Chicago, has reiterated his previous comment that the city's Gay Pride Parade could "morph into something like the Ku Klux Klan." LGBT groups plan to demonstrate against him outside the Holy Name Cathedral Sunday.

A local LGBT activist is planning a demonstration in front of Holy Name Cathedral, 730 N. Wabash Ave., in the wake of Cardinal Francis George's comments that compared the gay liberation movement to the Ku Klux Klan.

The protest, to be held in the morning on Sunday, Jan. 8, is the first scheduled demonstration against George after he told Fox News Chicago that the gay-right movement was at risk of morphing "into something like the Ku Klux Klan, protesting in the streets against Catholicism." George has reiterated his controversial marks twice since the initial comment.
