by Jeremy Hooper

Cool upcoming event from the newly-created Catholics For Equality group:

Catholics-For-EqualityCatholics 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.

Who:
Andrew Sullivan, Atlantic senior editor, political commentator, author, blogger
Maggie Gallagher, National Organization for Marriage spokesperson, political commentator, writer
E.J. Dionne, Washington Post columnist, Brookings Institute senior fellow, political commentator, author
Hanna Lomax-Vogt, Georgetown College Democrats
Joel Knowles, Georgetown College Republicans

What:
A Catholic Family Conversation on LGBT Issues
Sponsored by the Georgetown College Republicans and Georgetown College Democrats

When:
Wednesday, December 8, 2010; 8:30 - 10:00 PM ET

Where:
Georgetown University Intercultural Center (ICC) Auditorium (get map)

Why:
To engage as a diverse American Catholic family in a civil discussion around LGBT issues currently being debated in U.S.politics.

*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"?
