12/8: Catholics for Equality vs. Maggie for 'Culture war' gain$
Cool upcoming event from the newly-created Catholics For Equality group:
Catholics for Equality Invites You to A Catholic Family Conversation on LGBT Issues
Wednesday, December 8, 2010 8:30 - 10:00 PM (ET)
Georgetown University Intercultural Center Auditorium
WASHINGTON - LGBT issues are at the forefront of discussions in Catholic families, parishes and communities across the United States. Catholic families find themselves supporting their LGBT family members and friends, while at the same time are aware of the increasingly political role the US Bishops have taken against marriage equality, employment and military service, and immigration rights for LGBT people. This national "Catholic Family Conversation" will bring together leading voices on these issues to answer questions from college students preparing to return home for the Holidays.
The event will be livecast online at catholicsforequality.org/georgetown, with a live chat for Catholic college students from across the country to pose questions and add comments.

*We already have a question for Maggie: Does she really think it's smart strategy to accuse all civil marriage equality supporters of "committing several kinds of sins"?
