The Archdiocese of Madrid held an event on Saturday featuring testimonies “of Christian fathers and mothers with LGTBI children organized by CRISMHOM [Homosexual Christian Men and Women of Madrid] families.” The announcement of the second edition of the event, on the archdiocese's website and on social media, sparked controversy on Twitter.
The June 10 event at St. Francis of Assisi Parish was announced with the rainbow-colored theme “The Church is already diverse. Open your eyes and your heart!”
The program included an introduction and welcome, testimonies from LGBTI families, news, a colloquium, and a final prayer.
The event was organized by Homosexual Christian Men and Women of Madrid (CRISMHOM), which describes itself as a “nonprofit and public benefit association, Christian, lesbian, gay, transsexual, bisexual, and heterosexual.”
