    How is polygamy a sin?

    Back in the day (1957) when Britain was moving towards gay rights, the report mentioned that the governments job was to legislate crime, not morality

    If China or Germany or Russia was actively trying to get involved in the US legislative process many people would be angry but when the Vatican does it's looked at as just fine.

    I don't get it.

    Probably because China or Germany or Russia would have been smart enough to get involved BEFORE the election. For some reason, the Vatican waited until it was too late. They shouldn't be interfering, but lucky for us, they suck at it.

    Re: Vatican Launches 'Anti-Gay Media Blitz,' Compares Gay Marriage To Polygamy, Polya

    So the Pope gave this pedophile a knighthood and we should be taking advice from them.





    Jimmy Savile: Catholic Church bid to remove papal knighthood
    Jimmy Savile Savile presented BBC shows including Top of the Pops and Jim'll Fix It

    The papal knighthood given to Jimmy Savile "should not have been bestowed", a Vatican spokesman has told the BBC.

    The Catholic Church in England and Wales confirmed it has written to the Holy See to ask if the honour can be posthumously removed.

    The Archbishop of Westminster, the Most Reverend Vincent Nichols, called for an investigation, recognising the "deep distress" of Savile's alleged victims.

    Savile, who may have abused some 300 people, was granted the award in 1990.

    Meanwhile, a statement released by Savile's nephew, Roger Foster, described the family's "despair and sadness" over the revelations, adding "our feelings are in turmoil as we await the next turn of events"

    more....

    The arguments about biblical evidence and Chuch endorsed pedophilia may highlight a sense of hypocrisy, however they're really false equivalencies and take away from the real problem here.

    The real problem is the value judgment about homosexuality.

    even more so... rationalizing that judgment away with a "learn to love in spite of" meme is nothing more than self-righteous condescending drivel.

    its that kind of nonsense that leads people to believe that homos can be loved back to health.

    again.. The problem is the judgment and there is no REASON to affirm that judgment.

Black communities seem to be less progressive in terms of accepting homosexuality than whites or Latinos. I'm not entirely sure why, although I'm sure the religious influence has a lot to do with it. The Baptist church is still the most popular for African Americans, and they are pretty much lock-step with the Catholic church on social issues.

    I'm surprised that the Latinos are as accepting as they are, because of the machismo culture and the Catholic influence.

    yeah well you try finding an American who works as hard as Superman does and is willing to fly backward around the earth to turn back time and fight Lex Luther for $0 an hour. Americans don't want that job.
