Bad Week For The Pious

Italian police released recorded phone calls that implicate one of the Pope's ceremonial ushers, as well as a member of the elite Vatican choir in homosexual prostitution ring.  Whatever happened to good old-fashioned choir boys and church sleepovers?

In Ireland a three-year inquiry by the Commission to Inquire into the Dublin Archdiocese uncovered “a sickening tactic of don't ask, don't tell throughout the Church”.  The Commission found evidence of hundreds of crimes against children from the 1960s to the 1990s by at least 28 priests that were “covered up by the Archdiocese of Dublin and other Church authorities''.

Closer to home, California state Senator Roy Ashburn, a father of four and a staunch opponent of gay marriage that said “the institute of marriage is fundamental to our society. Marriage between one man and one woman is fundamental to civilization." had been previously spotted at guy clubs was on Monday arrested for DUI outside a gay club with unknown male companion.

Ooops.

I've always felt less than attractive because I was a catholic kid from the 1960's and 1970's and never got to have sex with Father. There were a few times in high school that in retrospect may have been me being hit upon - darn if I'd only been more perceptive.<br />

Marriage between one man and one woman maybe fundamental to civilization, but its only tolerable with a little gay action on the side. Who wants the gays to marry and ruin all that?

I love it when right wing anti-gay marriage fear mongers gets busted in a gay sex scandal or with a prostitute. There have been so many of them I think I should post a list of the right wing nut jobs that have been busted.

I'm beginning to wonder how long it will take for the sheeple to take note of this, and leave in droves. Or flocks.<br />

On a serious note though - isn't this similar to a woman who stays with an abusive husband "because he loves me deep down"?
