Odd concept.
There are masses in Spanish and Korean. Guitar masses for modern folks. Latin masses for traditionalists. There are masses with sign language for the deaf, and youth masses for the young folks.
Why are all of these "special interest groups" being treated differently? You should protest the inequality!!
Gay people who speak Spanish, Korean, like guitar, prefer Latin, are deaf and young can all attend these masses.

...and he's not refusing Mass to gays or lesbians.
Gays and lesbians can go to Mass as often as its offered. There just won't be a Mass dedicated to them specifically. They're being treated equally, right? They go to Mass with the other worshippers.
good point. I hadn't thought of that.
