Sex BREAKING: Pope Catholic
posted by March 30 at 9:32 AMon
The Pope wants us all to know that the Church’s opposition to gay marriage is “non-negotiable.” He’s ordered all Catholic politicians everywhere to oppose gay marriage—and civil unions. Even a proposed law in Italy that would allow same-sex partners access to each other in the hospital is unacceptable to the ol’ Nazi.
Gee, the Pope’s non-negotiable on gay marriage? That’s so out of character. I mean, seeing as how flexible the Church is on choice, birth control, condoms, female priests, and just about every other issue that touches on human sexuality. It’s really just on the issue of gay marriage that the ol’ Nazi is digging in the heels of his red leather Prada pumps.
Meanwhile in England… the Pope is arguing that laws aimed at protecting gays and lesbians from discrimination actually discriminate against the Church. Passing laws that protect gays and lesbians is “legislating for intolerance.” Because it’s intolerant to be intolerant of the Pope’s intolerance. Because he was intolerant first, so he had dibs.
If it’s any comfort to the Pope, gay Catholics are oppressed regardless. If the laws aren’t passed, we’re discriminated against for being gay. If they are passed, we’re discriminated against for being Catholics, cruelly deprived of our fundamental right to oppress ourselves.
