Video: Nun, your business: Catholic group determined to make people dislike you

by Jeremy Hooper

We've read about the so-called Tradition, Family, and Property (TFP) group's plans to traverse the Northeastern United States in order to rile up disdain for gay people. And we've already seen them in action in Maine (where they brazenly declared that a marriage is not a true marriage unless it involves God). Now check out this video from White Plains, NY, where the self-proclaimed "militant Catholics" were recently on the ground to work their oh-so high-minded "Adam & Eve, not Adam & Steve" nonsense:

Now, this person shouldn't have hit the camera. We don't need to do that. Their hurtful actions can be belied better with brains than with fists.

But that being said: What is with this group's obsession? Seriously. Isn't there an actual societal problem to which Jesus would prefer they apply their unique brand of street corner activism?

Your thoughts

This black man is a fool. He supports TFP, a group opposed to every kind of egalitarianism. If TFP had its way, this man would be a slave.

Of course the dimwits at TFP don't seem to realize that this cretin is providing an argument against a celibate priesthood, after all the Catholic priesthood does not multiply either.

Probably his most accurate comment came at 1:57 - "I don't get it. I don't get it."

No matter how many times I watch clips like this, I still can't fathom the logic of anti-family groups like TFP.

What makes them so passionate about hurting people?
So passionate about taking children from their parents?
So passionate about separating spouses from one another?
So passionate about allowing children to be bullied?

All in the name of God.

It's so sad and scary.

whenever i hear people say "adam and eve, not adam and steve" i want to punch them in the face. of all the absurd reasons people give for denying lgbt people their rights, bronze age mythology involving a talking snake is the makes me the most sick.

Well, I have said it before, but if you read Genesis, "god" didn't make Adam and Eve. He made Adam. Eve was an afterthought. "God's" original plan, according to Genesis, didn't include Eve.
