    well if this part of the USA bans gay people it might as well reintroduce slavery too, Thank God I will never live there

      reintroduce slavery?

      1. It’s the slippery slope fallacy the anti-gay groups like to pull up so much, just in reverse.
        If allowing gay marraiges will lead to any man and his dead dog getting married. Surely by that same logic, denying rights to gays will inevitably lead to ethnic minorities being shackled up and sent to pick cotton for 16 hours a day for the rest of their natural lives.

    2. This has nothing to do with banning gay people in any part of the USA.

      What article are you reading?

    I wonder how that would hold up in the UK? Can catholic schools for example fire a teacher because he or she is gay? I suspect the answer is yes. Can the CoE sack someone working for it for being gay?

  3. “Mr. Doe argues that because his job requires him to represent the Catholic organisation’s positions to others from time to time, if his opposition to the marriage amendment was known, it would cause immense strain in his working relationships.”
    Is the economy that bad that he HAS to represent these people?
    If he feels strongly enough to donate to the equality cause, what stops him from jumping ship?
    If I became part of the Pope’s PR machine I’d wind up like Lady Macbeth, obsessively scrubbing myself clean every night and drowning my self-loathing in bargain basement whisky.

    1. Exactly. He obviously feels strongly enough to donate to a gay rights group, why is he aiding the bigots? He should escape while it’s not too late.

  4. I live in hope that one day, leaders of the Catholic Church around the world decide “you know what, our time would be best spent helping those people who really need our help rather than harassing those gay folk who are actually causing no harm to anyone else”

    I think that I have more chance of seeing a pig fly past St. Paul’s!

      I was at the4 fortnight for freedom outside a catholic church.

      virtually all the priests there – if they walked past a slaughterhouse, would be ground up into hamburg

      They have nothing else to do except to abuse children and eat themselves to oblivion.

      the sooner the better

      Diederot – during the french revolution to break free of the cabal of church and kings said

      mankind will be free when the last king is strangled with the guts of the last priest

      We ran out of kings and still have a way to go re the priests. I wouldnt feed their guts to my dog. let the birds and maggots do the job.

      Give lots of them alive to the muslims in recompense for the tens of millions murdered in the (actually) catholic crusades.

      The muslims would finish the job the Romans failed to do – in the circus.

      Save the popes head and shrink it.
