OneAngryCultist: Calling Cardinal Bullshit

In an article released Monday on Irish Central, Archbishop Cardinal Francis George shot back against LGBTQ activists who had recently picketed Chicago's Holy Name Cathedral, protesting the Church's attempts to block equality and civil unions in that state:

Some members of the Gay Liberation Network demonstrated in front of Holy Name Cathedral on Sunday, February 13, protesting against Catholic Church teaching on the immorality of homosexual genital relations and opposition to so called 'gay marriage.' These are deeply felt issues, because they speak to the personal identity of some and to the religious beliefs of others. No matter the issue, Catholics should be able to worship in peace, without fear of harassment. An open display of prejudice against the Catholic Church because of resentment of Church teachings prejudices civil discourse in our society.

Umm... alright. So, you feel you're being persecuted after spending so much time and MONEY trying to ensure that others don't get the same rights that you enjoy? FUCK YOU!

Does anti-Catholicism exist in America? Yes. Is it terrible? Yes. Do Catholics as a whole deserve the bad-wrap by association? No - some of the sweetest, kindest, and sexiest people I know are Catholic. Does the institution of the Church deserve a bad rap? Not entirely - although I will rally against the against the INSTITUTIONAL exclusion and discrimination that DOES exists. Is it fair that they use the "victim card" when being faced by groups they routinely discriminate against? Absolutely not! Therefore, loudly and proudly I say: FUCK YOU! Cardinal Francis and get back to doing the good shit your god on a stick demands.
