Red Star shines dimly

Follow up from last night. Today's Red Star did not report the bicycle robber in the Camden neighborhood of Minneapolis. And why would they? What's a little robbery among friends? Besides, they're too busy slobbering over the Prairie Home Companion movie set for filming in these parts. Gee, do you think that movie will attract the Farenheit 911 audience? Here's part of the cast:
"Legendary director Robert Altman will direct the film version of Garrison Keillor's "A Prairie Home Companion" at the Fitzgerald Theater in July, his production company confirmed Sunday. The big-name cast includes Meryl Streep, Lindsay Lohan, Woody Harrelson, Lily Tomlin and John C. Reilly, with more big names coming."
We digress. We know the Strib has very little sympathy for potential victims of the robber, so how did they do on the Sashers and their holy disruption of the Catholic Mass? Front page, "B" section. Sympathetic article; the homosexuals are victims of the big, mean Catholic church. Its downright oppressive that the Sashers can't protest at Mass. And what right does the church have to regulate their church services? Never mind that every other issue group will be next. Prepare to weep:

"Wearing rainbow-colored sashes, members of the group sought to take part in the eucharist to celebrate what they called the God-given
sexuality of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Catholics. But instead of a communion wafer, each sash-wearing worshiper received a blessing from the priests conducting the mass. The worshipers returned to their seats and stood,
cupped hands outstretched, for the remainder of the service."

"Singing the civil rights anthem "We Shall Overcome," the sash-wearers filed into the cathedral just before noon. After the service, they repeated the song from the front steps of the church."
We shall overcome indeed. We Shall overcome the Red Star's slanted coverage and leftist bias!
