Video: Love the 'sinner', hate everything about their peaceful civil existences

by Jeremy Hooper

Bishop Richard Malone loves to buddy up with Maggie Gallagher and other gay community foes. He's asking Catholics to give money to the Maine fight in a special collection to be held during 9/13 services. He thinks his personal faith is a perfectly acceptable reason to deny others of civil equality, and he has signed up for the "Stand For Marriage Maine" campaign in a major way.

But none of that matters, just as long as he states that he doesn't have animosity towards gay people. Right?

You totally believe his closing words, right? I mean this man's only telling millions of people to make us second-class citizens -- why shouldn't we completely absolve him of all our his gay-targeted wrongs based on a few compassionate words about dignity and respect? What is that old saying: "Words speak louder than actions" or something like that?

Your thoughts

Is he fucking serious? They always chime in at the end about human dignity etc.

I've never met one of these pricks who will answer this question remotely honestly: "If someone told you they didn't hate you after spending truckloads of money trying to take your rights away would you believe them?"

They always lie through their teeth and claim they wouldn't care if their marriage license was ripped up or desperately try to change the subject.

Who the fuck wants a "Christian" marriage? What a load of horseshit! If you eat this "Christian Bagel", you won't be hungry for a week! If you buy this "Christian Malarkey" and spread it liberally around your face and head, you won't suffer from warts! Our "Christian Lambasting" of the fags is our way of atoning for fucking so many of your children, and institutionally covering it up, denying it and lying about it!

I didn't know that a Bishop could spiel so much bullshit! Well, I guess I did - the Pope is a master of bullshit. "We love you homosexual persons", but God made you that way so you're screwed - you can't have sex (just like all of us Roman Catholic Priests!) Hey, Bishop, what ever became of God giving us free will - - it is NONE OF YOUR DAMN BUSINESS what we do - look after your own soul. Judge not lest ye be judged. Let him without sin cast the first stone. Love one another like I love you - - your bullshit saying you love the homesexual person is more horseshit than we would need to fertilize the world 3 times over. I'm a catholic who is so much more chrisian that you!

Gee... ...I'm just wondering what atheists think of the Bishop's statements. Suppose an atheist husband and atheist wife saw this. Suppose a heterosexual Hindu married couple watched this. That's right, all you Hindu, atheist, Muslim, Buddhist, and Jewish married couples, YOU don't count cuz you're not married through the Lord. Tough shit.

Was it me, or did he sound like a robot?

No, it was robotic.

The questions that nobody's asking the Christian right (and that somebody should ask) are whether marriages between couples who cohabited or had children out of wedlock or were divorced should be considered valid. Furthermore, what about non-Christian couples?
