Dutch Gays Protest Church Communion Refusal


Pink wafers and wigs were the fashion Sunday as hundreds of Dutch activists in the city of 's-Hertogenbosch walked out of mass in protest of the Catholic Church policy of denying communion to gay people.

According to the BBC, the dispute began last month when a priest in the nearby town of Reusel refused communion to an openly gay man who happened to be chosen prince for carnival celebrations.

On Sunday, "the Sint-Jan church in the city of 's-Hertogenbosch, also known as Den Bosch, was prepared for the protest and so decided not to give out Holy Communion during Sunday Mass," reports the BBC.

Several hundred protesters dressed in various shades of pink left the church singing and shouting anyway. Watch the video below.
