Staff and congregants at Cathedral of Hope United Church of Christ are no strangers to protests. The Oak Lawn church, known as the largest church in the world with a primarily LGBTQ membership, has long been a target of the “gays will burn in hell” so-called Christians and, more recently, the “all gays are pedophiles” crowd claiming they are protecting innocent children. But the group that turned up outside the church Sunday morning, Oct. 8, was something altogether different. Sunday morning, as those who attended Cathedral’s 8:30 a.m. services were leaving the church and others were arriving for the 10 a.m. service, a “whole bunch of Nazis” gathered outside the church, waiting to harass and intimidate those there for services, according to the Rev. Neil Cazares, the cathedral’s senior pastor.
