Pope Maledict Rides Again

Apparently our current pope – who I prefer to call Pope Maledict – has called LGBT relationships “weak love.”

Sometimes I wish I could take people and shake them, or – as Jim Johnson of Straight, Not Narrow points out: to tell them to shut up when they don’t know what they’re talking about.

I could have never explained to anyone before Betty started presenting as female what it’s like to live in the world as an LGBT couple, and I thought I knew. I really did. Faghag for years, lesbian hangabout for years – but really, I didn’t know. Weak is not the word for it.

There is some good news, though – the religious left is on the rise. (Where have you guys been?)

  1. blogged, ‘tooned, and otherwise digusted about this over at the lazycartoonist.

    And you’re right: there are many in the American Catholic Church who are fed up with this nonsense.

    Encycle This!

  2. I wouldn’t expect any less from a former Hitlerjugend. :(
