As predicted, some asswipe with too much time and money on his hand bought a quarter page ad space on the New York Times defending the pope on those recent children molestation scandals.
I wouldn't call him an asswipe, if he had justly defended Vatican or the pope. But as I expected yesterday, Bill Donohue here is saying that it is not pedophilia when most the victims are post-pubescent male, the crisis is instead about homosexuality. A kid can be 12 and still be called post-pubescent, with that logic one could also argue that Father Murphy who raped more than 200 deaf boys did not rape them because they are young boys but because he was attracted to deaf people, so it was a hearing issue. Doesn't matter what you call it, the Catholic church knows about their clergy who vowed for celibacy is raping innocent children and all they did was slapping them on the wrist, transferred them elsewhere and release them to molest children again. It would be fine for a random institution to put a staff with a drinking problem into therapy and then reinstate them back to their jobs once they are recovered, but it won't be fine for a wine distributor to reinstate a wine tester with the same problem back to his/her job.
Leave the gays out of this one, we are no more likely to molest children than any straight folks. Try as you may to change the focus and blame us for implicating the pope, but the fact is hundreds and thousands of children had been raped and sexually abused within the Catholic church and it's still happening today. Fix it, change your policy so you don't have to wait for Vatican to make every decision to defrock a priest, because while you're waiting 10 more kids are going to get raped. As an organization that is supposed to uphold morality, it is really not saying much when you just let these offenders loose again by transferring them elsewhere.
And New York Times... don't just fucking print anything.
People seems to be more wrapped up on calling being gay a sin, but ignoring other passages in Leviticus that called for stoning of adulterers, women who's not a virgin on their wedding days, people who eat shellfish and the phrase "Til death do us apart." Of course, they only upheld what's easy and convenient for themselves. There are a lot of people trying to change us and one of the many methods is shock treatment, we have all heard these stories but maybe some straight folks don't realize to what extent gays are tortured and sometimes even murdered just because we're gay. Yes people, there are these so called doctors who will strap electrodes on you and then show you naked pictures why frying the hell out of you just so to condition you to dislike members of the same sex.
One of these so called doctors, Aubrey Levin nicknamed Dr. Shock works in South Africa to "cure" members of the military of their homosexuality. He's a well known rightwinger with a history of homophobia and, of course, he was caught and filmed by his patient to making sexual advances. Since the arrest, dozens of young men had come forward with allegations of sexual assault and abuse. Just goes to show that next time if another self-righteous rightwinger comes out all homophobic, like Ted Haggard, Larry Craig, Roy Ashburn, Mark Foley, Troy King... etc., he's probably a closeted homosexual who's so self-repressed that will end up becoming a pervert.
Don't try to change us, leave us alone!
Oklahoma passed a bill to get themselves exempt from the Matthew Shepard Act. The act expands a 1969 hate crime law to include crimes motivated by the victim's actual or perceived gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability. Well, apparently they cited the wrong federal bill number in their legislation and Oklahoma is actually now exempt from federal laws about reporting racial and religious discrimination.
In trying to strip gays and lesbians of their rights, they have passed a legislation stripping the rights of a different group of minority. Sad but funny. It reminded me of this poem about Nazi Germany.
They came first for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me
and by that time no one was left to speak up. ~ Martin Niemöller
See what happens when you try to discriminate gays? Leave us alone!
And leave Ricky Martin, Sean Hayes and James Randi alone. It's not a big surprise and none of use would have cared. It's not like now that they're gay, we can all line up and have out way with them one at a time. Just because Angelina Jolie is straight doesn't mean every straight guys gets to do her, now does it? As SNL's Fred Armisen doing Joy Behar on the view - So what? Who cares?
