Abstract: "Dignity is a community of gay Catholics and friends committed to being both Christian and gay. We believe that God made us all and loves us all and that we must know, love and serve our brothers and sisters in order to know, love and serve God. We believe that the important thing in life is not whom we love, but that we love."
"Dignity is organized to unite gay Catholics, to develop leadership and to become an instrument through which gays may be heard by the church and society."
"As members of Dignity, we wish to promote the cause of the homophile community. To do this, we must accept our responsibility to the church, to society and to the individual homophile Catholic:
to the Church - to work for the development of its sexual theology and for the acceptance of homophiles as full and equal members of the One Christ.
To the society - to work for justice and social acceptance through educational and legal reforms.
To individual homophiles - to reinforce their self-acceptance and their sense of dignity and to aid them in becoming more active members of the church and society."
(The above was excerpted from a Dignity brochure.)
