Back of Photo: WASHINGTON--MAVERICK PRIEST--As a photographer takes aim, Rev. George A. Stallings preaches before an independent Catholic congregation Sunday morning at Howard University in Washington, against the wishes of his bishop, Cardinal James A. Hickey. According to church officials, Stalling's establishment of the Imani Temple is a major blow to Hickey, who earlier this year was accused of racism for closing three inner-city Catholic high schools. The move also puts Stallings on a collision course with the Roman Catholic Church. Associated Press Photo
