    Gosh, what a surprise… :O

    Man in frock who’s led a celibate life thinks he should share opinion on relationships… *yawn*

    Vote after vote in favour must be such a slap in the face with a wet fish to these types. It is proof positive that no one is listening to his weasel words of hate and division….

    Says the paedophile accomplice and all the hierarchy of his cult who have long forfeited the right to speak to issues of morality especially when it comes to relationships by some of his clergy with young underage males and females. An immorally bankrupt cult in my view as well as a bigoted and extremely hypocritical one.

  4. Yes, Cardinal. Society will change over time; making your brand of hatred a thing of the past.

    Yes, we do live with bad legislation, dear Cardinal. One of the worst is that which treats churches as charities and gives them tax breaks.

  6. Has he stopped raping altar boys?

  7. Chief child molester says what?

  8. Would you trust this man to be unaccompanied with your niece or nephew? This is no disciple of Christ but is a Disciple of Hatred. Still, looking on the bright side, the more clerics of his ilk and their outpourings of ugly bigotry, the more nails are driven into the coffin of his cult.

    We need an across-the-board decision by the Federal Government on this issue. Here in TN, they’ve gone as far as to create a new holiday- “Traditional Marriage Day” in which the wording of the bill quotes The Holy Bible. Why does the State feel it has the right to continually define marriage? Exactly what is “Traditional” Marriage in Tennessee seeing as even Interracial Marriage is STILL outlawed by the State Constitution along with Same Sex Marriage? http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2013/08/on-wrong-side-of-hypocrisy-traditional.html

      Hm, an interesting bill and an interesting blog. It begs the question of whose traditions we’re talking about. Genesis 2:24 doesn’t say what they’re trying to persuade people that it says. It’s certainly not a definition of holy matrimony and I’m pretty sure that marriage is nowhere clearly defined in the Bible. The Hebrew text here uses a word for “wife”, which most often refers merely to “woman”. The text, therefore, leaves considerable doubt, as to whether this hypothetical couple is married or fornicating. I thought that Christians tried to live according to the word of God. So, why do we so frequently see them putting their words into God’s mouth and expecting him to live by their word. Let me guess. Another paradox? Gee, we godless ones face such perplexity!

  10. I’ll say it again, the Catholic Church is a hate group.

  11. Shut up child molester!

    I’ll exclude you from my interpretation of Peace and Love and the Universe unless you follow my rules.

    Glad to have a mind of my own. Blame public education!

  13. A Ku Klux Klan rally ..? ‘Scuse me, dear. WE’RE not the ones prancing around in long frocks and big hats spouting hatred! Thank god for rapidly-advancing secularism.

    just another prelate who hides molesters.

    I’ve done my best to make sure people there in IL know about this clown and criminal. Yes, marriage passed and he needs to be passe in the churhc – Given the endless hidden molestation of children by the sex starved priests probably a hundred or more cardinals and bishops should be publically excommunicated and thown out on the street without a pension etc.
