To Keep Our Honor Clean!

Despite support from a vast majority of Americans, the likely repeal
of don't-ask-don't-tell has apparently triggered panic among the
Catholic wingnuts of the American Society for the Defense of Tradition,
Family and Property. They have issued a quasi-hysterical treatise
on why we must oppose the homosexual "deathstyle" in our military,
arguing gay people will spread AIDS and STDS and do us all in, but
don't misunderstand - they mean no harm.

"We have no intention to defame or
disparage anyone.... Our only intent is the defense of our
hallowed Armed Forces, the family, and the precious remnants of
Christian civilization."

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
