Bishop Frade carries rainbow flag in MDG March

+Leo Frade, bishop of Southeast Florida wrapped his sign in a rainbow flag at the march today. See him here at about 2:04+.

The bishops carried placards with messages dealing with the fight against hunger, the challenge to halve world poverty by 2015 and also Micah’s message reminding us that what God demands from us is to “do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with our God.” I carried a sign with that message from Micah 6:8, to which I added a rainbow flag to make sure that those who saw it that justice and mercy are not just for a few, but should be extended to ALL human beings regardless to their race, religion, national origin, social class or sexual orientation.
