This is what gay men look like?
Hate filled, and outrageous is nothing new in the news, especially so from religious fundamentalists. Today it comes from, as you probably could have guessed, a Roman Catholic official (surprise surprise). Cardinal Francis George said in a Fox news interview last week:
“‘You don’t want the gay liberation movement to morph into something like the Ku Klux Klan, demonstrating in the streets against Catholicism,’ he told visibly startled Fox News host Dane Placko.
Typically I would dismiss this kind of genuinely deranged reasoning and utter nonsense as either satire or not coming from someone that no one listens to, unfortunately this is not the case. This baffling comparison is coming from the leadership of the Catholic Church of Ireland whose words still influence millions, including children. This makes yet another despicable move from the Catholic Church.
This is getting to be such a regular occurrence if I didn’t know better I would swear they are deliberately trying to destroy their own Church by seeing how often they can stoop to new lows before the whole world dismisses them as the evil organization that they really are. Upon reflection their behaviors really are starting to be their undoing. So I guess a ‘keep up the good work’ is in order because the sooner they bury themselves into obscurity the better.
