Dining With Drag Queens


Crowds of protesters greeted the Pope during his recent London visit 

A Minnesota artist who plans to create a sculpture from over a million anti-gay marriage DVDs sent out by Catholic bishops has lost
her longtime job as Basilica of St. Mary's artist-in-residence. Lucinda
Nayor is bummed about her job but still hopes to create an art project that reflects "the love that is at the heart of the Catholic Church."

"The whole gay
thing seems to be [Archbishop John] Neinstedt's personal vendetta and a
red herring taking us away from the real important issues...I wanted to respond with creativity and hope for an inclusive world
rather than with anger and hate. I mean somebody's got to break that
cycle... and it's a Christian's job to do it."


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
