Vote for the Best & Worst Catholic LGBT News of 2017

We’re coming to the close of 2017, and publications around the globe are
publishing “Best Of” and “Worst Of” lists for all kinds of endeavors: books,
movies, food, performances, etc. Here on Bondings 2.0, we focus in on the
Best and Worst Catholic LGBT News of 2017.

As usual, we turn to you, our readers, for help in compiling and ranking these
lists. We’ve assembled two polls below for the “Best” stories and the “Worst”
stories.  Each list contains 15 “nominees,” based on the blog staff’s
assessments of which stories seemed to generate the most comments, had
the most impact, or seem to have potential for future developments.

We ask you to vote for 5 candidates for the “Best” stories and 5 candidates for
the “Worst” stories.  You don’t have to rank them.  Just select the ones you
want to single out from the list. We will print the resulting lists on December
29th (Worst) and 30th (Best). We will rank the stories based on the number of
votes received for each.

You can also choose the “Other” option and write in your own candidate.
Please respond by the 5:00 p.m., Eastern U.S. Time, on Thursday,
December 28th.

If your memory needs refreshing about what happened this past year, just use
the tools in the right-hand column of this blog to find stories that have been
reported on here.  You can search by clicking on a category, by using a
search term.

Thanks for your help in compiling these lists!  We look forward to reading your
