>never be an end to the catholic war on humanity.

And [the priests] did not know how to love their God except by crucifying man.

The think progress rss aboce is interesting. Accepting gay marriage is like asking a Jew to eat bacon. Actually, it might be like asking a Jewish person to not discriminate against prople who dont folloe Jewish orthodox law. Which is not the same thing. Then again, Huckabee probably needs the money to be made drome homophobic pandering. So he can bring home the bacon.

There will never be an end to the catholic war on humanity. Too bad they never recognize a supposedly celebate but in reality sexually abusive and often pederastic clergy, as antifamily.

From Religious Digest's LGBT Recap

Italy: Rome recognizes civil unions; Catholic Church decries ‘anti-family itinerary’

Rome this week began to register same-sex civil unions. “Today the capital of Italy gives the signal that, in this city, love is the same for everyone,” cheered Marino Sindaco. (Translation courtesy of Google.) No cheers from the Catholic Church, which disparaged the move as an “ideological bluff.” Pink News reports that the editor of the website for the Rome diocese called the civil unions vote “a symbolic stage in an anti-family itinerary that opens up disturbing horizons damaging children.”

France: Anti-gay Catholic group buys neighboring gay bar at auction

An anti-gay Catholic organization, The Missions of Divine Mercy, bought at bankruptcy auction a gay bar in the city of Toulon. The group put out a statement that said in part, “The important of this place for the evangelization of the neighborhood is clear. The bar of Sodom will now become the pub of Mercy.”

Related: new research shows that transgender children as young as 5 years old are nearly indistinguishable on psychological gender-association tests from cisgender children of the same gender identity.

The study, Gender Cognition in Transgender Children, from the University of Washington, says, "Our results support the notion that transgender children are not confused, delayed, showing gender-atypical responding, pretending, or oppositional"; "transgender children do indeed exist and that this identity is a deeply held one."

The tests included an Implicit Association Test, which measures responses that are faster by milliseconds when concepts are unconsciously paired together.

Lead author Kristina Olsen was expecting to find a difference "between the degree to which a transgender girl associated herself with girls — compared to cisgender girls — simply because, for part of that transgender girl’s life, other people called her a boy." "I had this wrong interpretation that it was a switch. But for them, that is who they are and have [always] been."

What an existential dilemma - having to vote for either a non-white person or a non-male. What to do . . . .

Wouldn't it be fun if Carson did get the nomination?  Dough-Boy Rove wouldn't work with him, and the rednecks wouldn't vote for him.

(Although there are still a lot of elderly African Americans who still vote Rethuglican because it used to be "The Party of Lincoln."  I used to work for one...she also thought OJ Simpson was innocent...we had some yelling matches during that farce of a first trial.)

Mabel was a REGULAR on that TV show, but was always billed as "Guest Star."  She worked (coaching) till she was in her 80s...but still remembered every rebuff and insult anyone tossed in her direction....I can't really blame her.

Likely presidential candidate [if by "likely presidential candidate" you mean the likely candidate whose only qualification is he's black and Republican] Ben Carson tells Iowa radio host that Congress should remove federal judges who support marriage equality.

Federal judges had better make sure that their future rulings don’t conflict with the policy preferences of a President Ben Carson. Otherwise, despite a lifetime appointment, they might quickly find themselves out of a job.


During an interview last week with conservative Iowa radio host Steve Deace, Carson, who is considering running for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016, discussed the wave of recent rulings by federal courts striking down same-sex marriage bans. He argued that statewide ballot initiative results should be the final word, saying it was “unconstitutional” that judges have ruled in favor of equality despite these votes.


Carson continued that, when federal judges make rulings like this, “our Congress actually has the right to reprimand or remove them.”
