What is wrong with these cardinals — gay marriage in Spain = Nazi death camps

Cardinal Ricard Maria Carles has a screw loose.

WTF?! Do these guys have a death wish for the Catholic church? These allegedly learned Men of GodTM keep uttering insane sh*t like this that makes them look like….ummm…our American Taliban! (Advocate):

Gay rights groups in Spain reacted with anger on Wednesday after a Roman Catholic cardinal compared obedience to the legalization of same-sex marriage to the process that led to the creation of Nazi death camps, Agence France-Presse reports. “If you give obedience to the law priority over obedience to your conscience, that leads to Auschwitz,” Cardinal Ricard Maria Carles, former archbishop of Barcelona, told a Spanish television station.

Spanish deputies last week approved a bill allowing gays and lesbians to marry and adopt children. The bill is expected to become law and would make Spain the third European country after the Netherlands and Belgium to do so. “The people who made Auschwitz were not criminals, but people who had been forced to, or thought they had a duty to, obey the laws of the Nazi government rather than their own conscience.”
