Interesting day today. We had a liberal blog link to us and send us over 150 visitors. Not one left a rude comment. I hope they actually learned something about true history while they were here.
Yesterday I posted on hateful commenters. Two of them left comments, assuming I was only talking about them, and spouted the usual rhetoric. One assumed that I have never left my little redneck village. Actually I have lived in several states and thanks to Uncle Sam am quite well traveled. Another one asked if I was one of those people with the bumper sticker “My kid beat-up your honor student.” No, actually my child is the honor student and more than likely will be advanced a grade or two very soon.
This is the problem with the angry Left. They accuse us of being closed minded and stereo-typing everyone, when in reality they are the ones who are projecting their biases and have no tolerance for differing views.
Now for some news, I see the Catholic League put out the following release. I found it very interesting.
VATICAN CITES ROLE OF HOMOSEXUALITY
Yesterday, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Vatican’s secretary of state, said that “there is a relation between homosexuality and pedophilia.” The number-two Vatican authority cited psychologists and psychiatrists as having made this claim.
Responding is Catholic League president Bill Donohue:
It should be obvious to everyone that homosexuality does not cause predatory behavior, and nothing that Cardinal Bertone said contradicts that fact. But he is right, and his critics are wrong, to say that there is a link between homosexuality and the sexual abuse of minors. To be specific, homosexuals are indeed overrepresented—for whatever reason—as child molesters [click here for the evidence].
The authorities in a free society have a moral obligation to protect homosexuals from bullying and unjust discrimination. But no amount of political correctness justifies a cover-up: if any group is overrepresented as contributing to a social problem (as are the Irish in relation to alcoholism), then it must be dealt with squarely.
To the extent that practicing homosexuals find it more difficult to enter the priesthood (and this has been true for some time), the sexual abuse scandal will check itself. As a matter of fact, it already has.
