Quote of the day
Pope graphic by Mike Tidmus
“You know well that the church wishes to impose nothing on anyone, and that she merely asks to live in freedom.”
— Papa Ratzi at Istanbul’s Holy Spirit Cathedral
I guess homos are the exception to that statement. So wrong, on so many levels…
Joe at Americablog summed it up quite nicely…
Given this new standard, the Catholic hierachy needs to stop its hate-filled anti-gay lobbying as well as opposition to birth control and choice. It’s welcome news on World AIDS day, if the pope isn’t just spinning.
The Catholic Church in the U.S. puts an enormous amount of time and resources in to fighting any legislative proposal seeking to end discrimination against gays and lesbians. The Church has also worked to prevent the distribution of condoms despite their proven life-saving capacity in the fight against AIDS. Now that the pope says the church doesn’t impose its will on anyone, they have to back off.
Feel free to use as an open thread.
