LOL!!!!

""""" The Vatican also hired a former Fox News correspondent to bring their communications strategy into the 21st century, since that network did such an impressive job during the 2012 US presidential election.

The Catholic Church is foundering, and it'll take a lot more than 140 characters and a rightwing "news" hack to put it on a modern track."""

EXCELLENT article!!!!

A lot of cruel and SINFUL gay-bashing is, I believe, largely due to the RCC's horrid intolerance of something they know nothing about.

Read a Bible and put end to your ignorance. Are you aware in your ignoarance that it was Christ himself that destoyed Sodom not even being able to find 10 righteous men within it's walls?

LOL - you believe in that Sodom & Gomorrah stuff? Get real. HUMANS wrote the bible - and very ignorant, superstitious ones. Believe in your fairy tales if you need to but don't expect everyone else to be so uneducated and gullible.

P.S. I still say the earth is flat!

Also - Hates Queers - if you hate them so much, YOU are sinning and NOT religious at all. You promoting killing them? I bet God really loves you for that. I'm reporting you - promoting violence.

Hi Morgana 9 - I turned "Hates Queers". Promoting killing/violence is a serious offense. He'll be hearing from Topix, whom I'm sure has some homosexual employees. I'm for equal rights for all and I can tell you are also. You're a good person. This Hates Queers probably really thinks he's religious - yeah, RIGHT...he belongs in the KKK.

You make sense; you're a lot smarter than those two hayseeds :)

You'd be the first to start the killing, wouldn't you? You're in trouble.

Hey you two hayseeds - I'm BLACK, you gonna use racial epithets to me? I'll gladly report that, too.

The KKK would welcome you both and you sure have that mentality.

You seem to operate under the delusion that "righteous" means "heterosexual". Lot offered his own daughters to be raped by those men. I suppose you think they would have been "righteous" in doing so, if it meant their attention would be taken away from the male (appearing) angels that came with the message.

It's pretty fucking clear that the city wasn't destroyed because a gay people had consensual sex in their own homes. Sodom and Gomorrah was a den of rape, murder, slavery and theft. It had nothing to do with what orifice people were sticking it into with whom, and everything to do with the utter disregard for human dignity and kindness.

I suspect people like you identify more with the residents of that city than any gay couple living today. You are utterly evil. You'll be the pillar of salt, long before they will.

Sorry pal (not really), I don't waste my time reading works I consider to be nothing more than faith-based FICTION.

Jesus Christ himself didn't have anything to do with the destruction of Sodom or Gomorrah. Genesis 19:24

Almighty God Jehovah was the executioner of the people of that land.
