Bill Donohue: Here’s What The Pope Meant

“The pope is right that single-issue Catholics need to rise above their immediate concerns. He did not say we should not address abortion or homosexuality; he simply said we cannot be absorbed by these issues. Both the left and the right should heed his message. The article in the New York Times says U.S. bishops will feel the pinch of …

HomoQuotable – Michelanglo Signorile

“By saying that ‘it is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time,’ Francis is slamming people like Maggie Gallagher, former president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), who has made it her life work to constantly talk about gay marriage — touting her Catholic beliefs — and stop marriage equality by pitting groups against one another. …

HRC Praises Pope Francis

“With these latest comments, Pope Francis has pressed the reset button on the Roman Catholic Church’s treatment of LGBT people, rolling back a years-long campaign at the highest levels of the Church to oppose any measure of dignity or equality.

“This is a victory for marriage. We are pleased that Judge Pellegrini reiterated that Pennsylvania law expressly defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman. The people of Pennsylvania should be grateful to Governor Corbett for his leadership on this issue. As the chief executive of the state, he properly used his office to uphold the law …

MINNESOTA: Teacher At Catholic High School Fired After Coming Out

A teacher at a Catholic high school in Minnesota has been fired shortly after coming out to other staffers.

Brian Brown Cheers Australia

“Dear Joe, ‘Sank Like a Stone’ — that’s how same-sex marriage faired in Australia this past week. Australia held elections for Prime Minister the other day, but it was as much a referendum on whether the Aussies would redefine marriage or not. You may remember I had traveled to Australia in August for the World Congress of Families, and I …

Brian Brown: Hawaii Emergency! Again!

“The Governor claims that there have been no complaints or lawsuits in Hawaii — yet. But that’s because marriage has not yet been redefined! Just look around elsewhere. In Vermont, Christian inn-keepers were fined for declining to host a same-sex wedding AND ordered to cease hosting weddings altogether. Recently, the New Mexico state Supreme Court ruled that Christian photographers must …

Satan Loves Sodomy, Part 87

“Today, many evil forces have set their sights on the dissolution of marriage and the debasing of family life. Sodomy, abortion, contraception, pornography, the redefinition of marriage, and the denial of objective truth are just some of the forces threatening the stability of our civilization. The source of these machinations is none other than the Father of Lies. Satan knows …

Bill Donohue Attacks Scott Stringer

“When you voted against pulling the tax-exempt status of Zymurgy, you already knew that its real goal was to promote child rape, yet you did so anyway. Were it not for Attorney General Dennis Vacco, who persevered on appeal to deny the child molesting activists their tax-free status, they might still be in business. Your spokeswoman, Audrey Gelman, said you …

Quote Of The Day – Francis George

“This is first of all a rational issue before it’s a faith issue. That is, it’s nature that tells us what marriage is, that in marriage, men and women aren’t interchangeable. We didn’t invent marriage. The church didn’t invent marriage. The state didn’t invent marriage. Nature gives us marriage. The Chinese are not Americans, and they’re not Catholic. They know …

Bishop Of Honolulu: Gay Marriage Will Force Normal People To Be Re-Educated

“Would people who firmly believe that God made us male and female, and that God has revealed that homosexual ACTS are sinful be allowed to hold such beliefs? Or would they have to be ‘re-educated’ to think as ‘normal’ people think? Would churches that refuse to celebrate same-sex marriage because of deeply held religious convictions be deprived of the freedom …

Quote Of The Day: Cardinal Donald Wuerl

“If someone describes marriage as inherently something between a man and a woman only, is this somehow discrimination, bigotry or even hate speech? Until just a few years ago, this question would be looked upon as absurd. But today it is a real inquiry and an open challenge to the truth about human sexuality, the complementarity of man and woman, …

SCOTLAND: Disgraced Cardinal Keith O’Brien Halted Sexual Abuse Inquiries

Back in February, Cardinal Keith O’Brien resigned two days after four priests accused him of “inappropriate contact” with them while they were seminary students in the 1980s. O’Brien later issued a murky confession about behavior “below the standards expected of me as a priest, archbishop and cardinal.” Today we learn that O’Brien halted an inquiry into sexual abuses by other …

Quote Of The Day – Bill Donohue

“It was the Democrats who made the difference between last week and this week. Last week, they were indecisive; this week they decided to cast their vote in favor of a bill that discriminates against the Catholic Church. We need a lawmaker who will introduce a bill that discriminates against the public sector. The bill should suspend the statute of …

Mexican Bishop Denounces Homophobia

Andres Duque notes some surprising support from Bishop Jose Raul Vera Lopez: The Bishop has some funky theories on what determines whether someone is born gay (he chalks it up to hormonal differences) but speaks forcefully against religious based homophobia and calls homophobes the perverse ones. He also tells the reporter people have to stop bashing gays with the words …
