By the power vested in me by the Catholic Church, I now pronounce you value-less vacuums; you may kiss your worth goodbye

by Jeremy Hooper

Salvatore Cordileone is widely considered the "Father of Prop 8." Unfortunately, he's yet to disown his biased baby. In fact, he's nurturing the discriminatory brat with ever-coarsening rhetoric:

Our society does not operate in an amoral or value-less vacuum,” said Bishop Salvatore Cordileone of Oakland, chairman of the Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage. “To flourish, it must be infused with moral direction that is grounded in the truth. Of course, the true meaning of marriage, like the gift of human life, is ultimately not subject to a vote or court ruling. But in California, as in every other state where marriage has been put to a vote, the people justly upheld the truth of marriage. How tragic for California, for the nation, and especially for children, that this correctly-informed judgment has now been set aside.”
[USCCB]

Pssst -- by "amoral of moral-less vacuum," he's essentially referring to our lives, loves, relationships, marriages, homes, and families. In his Dyson-invoking scenario, we are what sucks. In this world of great, multifaceted devastation, our ability to find lasting love is what the Bishop sees as truly "tragic."

It's just too bad for the good Bishop that virtual reality technology never advanced the way some hoped. An ability to cast digital, 3-D stones would've really shorthanded things.
