    Isn’t it rich? When the religious bigots denigrate us, its ok and they claim they have a right to their “christian” views, but when we do it, they cry foul demanding that a person’s religious beliefs are exempt from the law when they resort to hate speech about us. Please!

  2. What does this group of people expect when the RC Church condemns Gay lifestyle at every given opportunity and the present Pope is responsible for all the anti Gay stuff that’s been spat out of the Vatican over the last decade or so? Gay people have had to put up with all sorts of insults from organised religions WITHOUT resorting to violence or terrorism. We don’t blow people up for insulting us or burn books and preach hatred BUT we are allowed to defend ourselves and our new given rights! Giving a verbal or a pictorial repost to the RC church is letting them off lightly!

    It is extremely childish to use bad behaviour of the xtians to try and justify one’s own myopic views.. I would have thought that with so many educated glbt spokespersons available that this community would have done better in speaking out aginst injustice and not resorting to the same tactics which they deplore as evil…

    I would think that that the glbt community would have better things to say aout the problem solving of name calling and not rewsorted to doing the same thing their enemies do.. it’s a crying shame ..

  5. I don’t think its simply a case of name calling and schoolyard “nah nah!”. If you read some of the Vatican statements, yes the Pope would bring back the Inquisition in some form or another (but we now have the UN and the Human Rights Actfor protection!) There are not many ways we, as LGBT can fight the Forces of religion, but we can verbally respond and make the Str8 community understand our fears. These comments would be against the Law if they were about Black or Jewish people. These comments also come from an organisation which should look at its own clergy’s sexual behaviour before it Judges others (I think Someone called Jesus said something about judging others?!)

  6. CHURCH AND THEIR “GOOD TRADITIONAL VALUES”, I AM SO ANGRY OF THAT.THEIR VIEW OF HUMAN RIGHTS IS TO ALL OF US SAY THAT THEY ARE APSOLUTE GOOD,WHICH WE CANT CRITICIZE,AND TO BECOME THEIR SLAVES!UUUUUUUUUUUFFFFFFF!
    AFTER ALL CAUSE OF WARS,DEATHS CHURCH IN 21TH EXIST,I CANT BELIEVE!
    ORTODOX ARE THE WORST!THEY EVEN DONT HAVE SECULARITY.

    HazteOir sounds like Hate You, which sounds just right for these godbothering ‘Christian’ organisations, wish the pope would drop dead the useless twat he is not in touch with the real world! Hope that somebody stands up to them !

    90% Catholics haven’t been hidding from RC Church history through centuries. The RC Church think they have the right to say LGBT are sin and bad. I myself, a human beeing, also think I have the right to say “RC Church are sin and bad from the base of their blooding history centuries and child sexual abuses in recent century”

  9. RC Church History? The Crusades, (the sack of Constantinople; a christian city!)The Inqisition, enforced baptism of native peoples, burning heretics and certain excentric old ladies(!) Papal nepotism, condemnation of scientific fact, inaction over the Holocaust and rampant child abuse….but remember LGBT people are sinners(!)
