Cardinal Dolan: Gays Only "Entitled To Friendship", Not Marriage

Cardinal Dolan It's quite interesting and amusing to watch the parallels of the Catholic leadership's and the GOP's inability to "evolve" quickly enough to keep up with the dramatically shifting opinion on gay marriage.  Cardinal Dolan does not speak for the majority of his U.S. congregation. Via Think Progress:  Cardinal Timothy Dolan told ABC’s This Week on Sunday that gay people are entitled to “friendship” but not a long-last romantic relationship in the eyes of the Catholic Church. Appearing on the program following oral arguments at the Supreme Court challenging the constitutionality of two laws targeting gay and lesbian couples, Dolan said that the Church should treat same-sex couples with love, while reminding them that “sexual love…is intended only for a man and a woman”: GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS (HOST): And you know, especially this week – because it’s been at the top of the news – for many gay and lesbian Americans –– gay and lesbian Catholi

Another Anti Gay Pope Is Chosen...Surprise!!!

The new face of Catholic Homophobia Go Figure!! From JoeMyGod: The new pope is Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, Argentina.  From Wikipedia:   He strongly opposed legislation introduced in 2010 by the Argentine Government to allow same-sex marriage. In a letter to the monasteries of Buenos Aires, he wrote: "Let's not be naive, we're not talking about a simple political battle; it is a destructive pretension against the plan of God. We are not talking about a mere bill, but rather a machination of the Father of Lies that seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God." He has also insisted that adoption by homosexuals is a form of discrimination against children. This position received a rebuke from Argentine president Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, who said the church's tone was reminiscent of "medieval times and the Inquisition".

Anti Gay Catholic Church Accidentally Purchases Gay Sauna!!

Hahahahahahahaha!!  Via DailyKoz : Don't you just hate when  this  happens? A day ahead of the papal conclave, faces at the scandal-struck Vatican were even redder than usual after it emerged that the Holy See had purchased a €23 million (£21 million) share of a Rome apartment block that houses Europe’s biggest gay sauna. Oh, how very awkward. While the Church is busy spending so much of its time shaking its bejeweled fist at The Gays, turns out the Church accidentally—accidentally, you guys, accidentally!—invested in some fabulous gay real estate. So how did this happen? The senior Vatican figure sweating the most due to the unlikely proximity of the gay Europa Multiclub is probably Cardinal Ivan Dias, the head of the Congregation for Evangelisation of Peoples, who is due to participate in tomorrow’s election at the Sistine Chapel. This 76-year-old “prince of the church” enjoys a 12-room apartment on the first-floor of the imposing palazzo, at 2 Via Carducci, just

Study: Bee Venom May Kill HIV

This could be a big deal.  We've had "major developments" that have disappointed before.  Let's see what happens. Via Huffington Post: A new study has shown that bee venom can kill the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).   Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have demonstrated that  a toxin called melittin found in bee venom can destroy HIV  by poking holes in the envelope surrounding the virus, according to a news release sent out by Washington University.   Nanoparticles smaller than  HIV were infused with the bee venom toxin , explains U.S. News & World Report. A "protective bumper" was added to the nanoparticle's surface, allowing it to bounce off normal cells and leave them intact. Normal cells are larger than HIV, so the nanoparticles target HIV, which is so small it fits between the bumpers.   “Melittin on the nanoparticles fuses with the viral envelope,” said research instructor Joshua L. Hood,

Anti Gay UK Cardinal Admits To Being A Closet Case

Anti gay closet case Cardinal Keith O'Brien Once again, an outspoken homophobe admits to being a closet case.  This time, it's the head of the Catholic church in the U.K.  He joins a long list of anti gay closet cases. Via Huffington Post: Cardinal Keith O'Brien, who was forced to resign by the pope last week, has made a dramatic admission that he was guilty of sexual misconduct throughout his career in the Roman Catholic church.   In a short but far-reaching statement issued late on Sunday, the 74-year-old stated that "there have been times that my sexual conduct has fallen below the standards expected of me as a priest, archbishop and cardinal".   The former archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh, and until recently the most senior Catholic in Britain, apologised and asked for forgiveness from those he had "offended" and from the entire church.   O'Brien was  forced to resign  last week by Pope Benedict XVI, barely 36 hours after  th

Is High School Student Seth Groody A Self Loathing Closet Case?

Seth Groody: Against Gay Marriage I can't say for sure.  I have no proof one way or another.  However, studies show that many men who express homophobia tend to have same sex attraction.   When a "straight" guy goes out of his way to scream how much he opposes gay rights, its as if he is announcing to the world that he secretly craves cock.  I don't know if this is the case for Seth Groody.  I can say that it makes me question his motivations for being so openly homophobic.  Most straight guys, who are secure in their heterosexuality, don't act like Seth has acted.  It makes me wonder whether Seth will soon join the long list of closet-case  anti gay hypocrites .  Via Gay Star News: A US high school is no longer forcing a student to do away with his anti-gay apparel. Seth Groody of Wolcott High School in Connecticut was originally requested by his school  to remove an anti-gay t-shirt he wore on last year's 'Day of Silence', a new campaign

Lech Walesa's Anti Gay Comments Tarnish His Human Rights Record

Thumbs down to Lech Walesa's anti gay comments It is sad to see this man, who stood up for worker's rights and was a hero to so many, now spouting anti gay hate speech! Via The Guardian: A national committee devoted to fighting hate speech and other crimes in  Poland  has filed a complaint with prosecutors in Gdansk accusing Lech Walesa of promoting a "propaganda of hate against a sexual minority", after the Nobel peace prize-winner said gay people had no right to a prominent role in politics.   Walesa said in a television interview on Friday that he believed gay people had no right to sit on the front benches in parliament and, if there at all, should sit in the back "or even behind a wall".   "They have to know that they are a minority and adjust to smaller things, and not rise to the greatest heights," he told the private broadcaster TVN during a discussion of  gay rights . "A minority should not impose itself on the majority.
