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."
