In a country that doesn't (officially) recognize state-sponsored religion, whose Constitution says "all men are created equal," where bigotry and bias are abhorred — why do otherwise intelligent and sensitive people feel they can engage in hate speech against gay people?

If You're Making A Comprehensive List Of Ignorant, Out-Of-Touch Bigots, Here's A Place To Start

This article in today's New York Times reminds this "good Catholic boy" (I have the citations from a prominent, national, Christian university and membership in a Christian honor society to back that up) why I am so very glad I no longer associate with the Church; why I am thrilled I don't let a bunch of out-of-touch, dissembling, soulless men do my thinking for me; and why talk of the gradual disintegration of the church utterly delights me.

If you're keeping track:

Molesting boys for decades? Shhhhh -- move along! Nothing to see here. And certainly nothing for us to stand united against -- nothing for us to codify our displeasure with.

A show of love between two people? THAT'S something we need to oppose! Where do we sign?

Fucking hypocrites!

And lest you think this is about actual convictions, this sentence is particularly telling, isn't it?: "Organizers of the petition said it was in part an effort to revive the groundswell of opposition to same-sex marriage that helped bring many conservative voters to the polls in some pivotal states in 2004."

One particularly ignorant archbishop, John J. Myers, said of the campaign: "We think the American people are on our side on this, and we want the Senate to know it." Really? The Times article doesn't include the list -- but I'd like to see it. If it's largely a collection of 50 white men — with women and/or minorities conspicuously underrepresented — I think we can all conclude what this document is really trying to achieve, can't we?
