Artist Suspended Over Antigay DVD Protest

Artist Suspended Over Antigay DVD Protest


Lucinda Naylor, a Minneapolis artist and part-time church employee, was suspended from her job over a protest sculpture using antigay marriage DVDs distributed by the Catholic church.

The Catholic church began to mail the DVDs to 400,000 Catholics in Minnesota last week. They argue for a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage in the state.

According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the Rev. John Bauer, pastor of the Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis, made the decision to suspend Naylor, a 15-year employee.

"I suspect suspension is a kind word for termination," said Naylor, the Star-Tribune reported. "I'll miss the income. But there's times when people need to stand up for what they believe."
