The priest is said to have written directly to Rome because he did not ...

Pope: The Lord Snoozed On Me

“There were moments of joy and light but also moments that were not easy. There were moments, as there were throughout the history of the Church, when the seas were rough and the wind blew against us and it seemed that the Lord was sleeping. I took this step in the full knowledge of its gravity and rarity but with ...

NOM Spokesman Jennifer Roback Morse: Gays KNOW They Are An Abomination

“I’ve noticed in my encounters with men who are same-sex attracted particularly that they have a sense of shame. Have any of you ever noticed this? I’ve noticed that a lot of the people who are very active in the movement to redefine marriage will describe that when they were teenagers that they had a sense of wrongness — of ...

Brian Brown Vs. Rep. Richard Hanna

“There’s absolutely no doubt that we are going be involved in the next election for Richard Hanna’s seat. What folks don’t understand is that we have Republicans and Democrats who support us, but if a Republican betrays the party platform, betrays his constituents, and does what Richard Hanna does, you can bet we’re going to primary him. And if a ...

Cardinal Roger Mahony: Stop Condemning Me For Shielding Child Rapists

“I can’t recall a time such as now when people tend to be so judgmental and even self-righteous, so quick to accuse, judge and condemn.  And often with scant real facts and information.  Because of news broadcasts now 24/7 there is little or no fact checking; no in-depth analysis; no context or history given.  Rather, everything gets reported as ‘news’ regardless of the ...

HomoQuotable: Peter Tatchell

“Cardinal [Keith] O’Brien condemned homosexuality as a grave sin and was a long-time opponent of gay equality. He supported homophobic discrimination in law, including the current ban on same-sex marriage. In the light of these allegations, his stance looks hypocritical. He appears to have preached one thing in public while doing something different in private. Several other prominent opponents of ...

Bill Donohue: The Lavender Mafia Brought Down Cardinal Keith O’Brien

“Cardinal Keith O’Brien of Scotland will not be going to Rome to join the conclave because he does not want to distract from the proceedings. He has resigned following allegations by three priests and one former priest that he was involved in improper conduct. He says the accusations are untrue. Is this another example of the ‘Lavender Mafia’ at work? ...

MINNESOTA: NOM Pledges $500K Towards Defeat Of Pro-Gay Republicans

“Republicans like Branden Petersen don’t realize that not only is voting to redefine marriage a terrible policy, it is also a career-ending vote for a Republican. NOM will do everything in our power to defeat any Republican who votes in favor of same-sex marriage. Legislators need look no further than what happened to GOP Senators in New York. Four of ...

Bill Donohue Vs Dan Savage

“Unable to mount a rational critique of Pope Benedict XVI, he [Dan Savage] settled for writing a headline that was almost as long as his ‘story.’ It reads, ‘That Motherf***ing Power-Hungry, Self-Aggrandized Bigot In the Stupid F***ing Hat Announces His Retirement.’ Savage has a long history of trashing Catholicism, and he not only does it with impunity, he is rewarded ...
