It's not just gay marriage that they oppose

The Roman Catholic church doesn't want gays to marry. No news there, right? Everyone knows this. But do you also know that they don't want us to be able to live anywhere?
WASHINGTON (March 25, 2011)——The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has urged the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) not to adopt a proposed regulation that would add sexual orientation and gender identity to the list of protected categories for which discrimination in HUD programs is prohibited.
Put another way, they requested that discrimination against gays be allowed. Isn't that sweet? And let us recall that the USCCB is presently headed by none other than Timothy Dolan, the permanently smiling, always hateful NY priest who honchos the church's anti-gay efforts all over the United States.

Dolan was the public face for church opposition to passing a law to allow gay marriage in New York. This pathetic man actually referred to his trillion dollar church as a "David" facing the "Goliath" of gay people's efforts . . . to be treated like everyone else. He actually said that: David against Goliath. The man is grinning evil, dressed up as a witch doctor.

The Roman Catholic church, of its own volition, has chosen to be the mortal enemy of GLBT people. As Pat Condell said in the video I posted yesterday, we didn't begin this war, they did. The church goes wildly out of its way to taint the lives of gay and lesbian and bisexual and transgender people everywhere. It goes around with a permanent bullhorn, stating that members of these groups do not deserve marriage or housing. This is the church's "moral" position.

And the Roman Catholic church is happy to tell you that its god is the "god of love". It's like they're blind to their own nature. How vicious must a church be to direct such animosity at a group that seeks only fairness and equality? And how insane must they be to think that by engaging in destructive, anti-gay actions, they hold the moral high ground? Up is down. Evil is good. Welcome to the Roman Catholic church.

What's their next move, putting priests on the endangered species list?
