Lordy, would you look at this

I posted the other day about an insane column that appeared in the Archdiocese of Boston's official newspaper, The Pilot. In it, David Avila said Satan was responsible for the existence of gay people. It was an attempt to push the idea that god didn't create gays, because, you know, that'd be a mistake. So naturally, the devil did it.

It was so embarrassingly off the wall that they're gonna take it back! Here's an excerpt from the linked article:

The oldest Roman Catholic newspaper in the United States has retracted an opinion column suggesting the devil may be responsible for gay attraction . . .

Archdiocesan officials said Avila's apology would appear in the issue of The Pilot to be published this week, The Boston Globe reported.
I can't wait to read this alleged apology. Betcha he'll half-ass it all the way through. But the whole thing is rather fun and unexpected. Imagine: saying Satan caused gay people was too wild for the catholic church. That's saying a lot. I mean, how often does something like this occur? I thought they loved all hate-the-gays talk. Well, let's see what the apology looks like. Fun ahead!
