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."

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Won't Exist.
