    Well, nothing will change in this biggoted so-called church until more people really get up in arms and demand these kind of leaders be snuffed out…..Catholics should stop giving money that fuels these biggots…99% of clergy are there only for the money…most are too fat and lazy for anything else…

      Of course, no such thing would happen among our own Catholics let alone Anglicans. We’re so bloody complacent especially when it comes to equal marriage for example except for the opposition who are mobilised and well organised. Complacency and apathy achieve nothing. You would think after the O’Brien debacle we’d be seeing catholic supporters of equal marriage taking a stand, but no, wouldn’t occur to them would it?

        Why should people bother to change their church teachings, that they largely ignore, when they do not move themselves to change their political parties and politicians? At least some Catholics are taking a stand. Meanwhile, citizens are content either not to vote or to vote for the same old rubbish. And politics are relevant to everyday living and important for the individual and society. Apathetic bunch, yes, but people are generally “followers” and there are no leaders at present. It’s certainly a challenge.

  2. The Catholic Church is not worth saving, at least not in Detroit where the current bishop is just as stupid, horrible, obnoxious, odious, mincing and bitchy as the one in 1969 who publically told LGBT people they should organize like the “AA” and “seek therapy”. Like anyone should take moral instruction from a coven of child molesters who hoard money while the poor go hungry.

    1. The Catholic Church is not worth saving full stop! Along with pretty much all other religions.

      They all claim to be about love and understanding yet they seem to not have any love or understanding of LGBT folk or anyone else who goes against their doctrine!

  3. Personally, I’d let the church ‘hate-speech’ itself into history. It is so out-of-touch that priests seem unable to see ‘the faithful’ are getting sick and tired of the constant anti-gay rheoric. Most people these days know – or know of – someone gay. As we become more visible, we become more accepted and better liked. Yet the church is still there, demonising us. So, if religion wants to survive, it had better stop lar-lar-laring with its fingers in its ears and start paying attention to the public mood.

    He needs to pay attention to the Holy Father.
