MN: To sink boatload of bias, Catholic artist makes 'Wave'

by Jeremy Hooper

You know those discriminatory DVDs that the Minnesota Catholic Church sent around to state voters in hopes of cultivating a more homo-hostile atmosphere? Yea, well -- one local, Catholic artist saw potential where previously there'd only been limitation:

Dvd-250X321
[Lucinda Naylor] asked equality-minded Catholics to donate their copies of the DVD, and in turn, she'd use them to create an art project that would stand up to the sentiment that says you can't be Catholic and support gay rights.

That's just what Naylor did. And the result is a shimmery, silvery, sleek sculpture called "The Wave" that challenges the leadership of the Catholic Church to get with the program, and stop demonizing LGBT people.

*MORE: DVD To Art

Lemons beget lemonade; civil discrimination begets public art. Love it.

And don't worry about the opposition being able to artistically counter it, either. After all, a sculptural wave this big would take a pair of dikes to contain it -- and everyone knows these critics will never include that kind of coupling in their godly designs!
