Sometimes the news and information on Catholic LGBT issues comes in faster than we can keep up with! Some days, we find that we just don’t have time to comment on everything that passes across our desktops. To help our readers be up-to-date on as much of the latest information possible, we are instituting a new occasional feature called “NEWS NOTES.”
When you see the header “NEWS NOTES” and the logo at the right, you will find a link or list of links to news articles or opinion pieces on Catholic LGBT issues and related topics. In this way, you won’t miss a beat of the latest information.
Here’s our first installment:
1) In response to Minnesota Archbishop Nienstedt’s prayer for heterosexual marriage, Bernard Schlager, director of the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies in Religion and Ministry, asks on HuffingtonPost.com: “How About A Prayer for All Marriages?”
2) On ReligionDispatches.org, Sarah Posner asserts “In 2012 Bishops Join Fight to Repackage Discrimination as ‘Religious Freedom.’ “
3) Austin Considine of the New York Times takes a bittersweet look at how “Gay Marriage Victory Still Shadowed By AIDS.”
Let us know what you think of these articles, and if you find this feature helpful.
