    Wait...I thought placing children with Catholic priests was child abuse.
    Where do they get off saying it's abuse by placing them with gays and lesbians?
    Anyway, I'm glad the Supreme Court told them to STFU and get over it. icon_biggrin.gif

    So what actually happens? What is the result? Will the evil, child-molesting, child-abusing Catholic Church still prevail? Will children now be placed in GLBT homes, or not?

    It means that we get more families like these:

    Here's what has happened in a similar case in the UK:

    the general reaction seems to be that if the law of the land prohibits discrimination, exceptions will simply not be granted within the public realm.

    "We haven't seen the same level of vitriol and hostile remarks from the Board of Supervisors. These people are notorious anti-Catholic bigots," [said the male chauvinist homophobic bigot].

    C'mon. If they Board of Supervisors really were anti-Catholic they would have turned the Mission Dolores into a bathhouse or an abortion clinic.

    The Roman Catholic Church is the most corrupt and the most hypocritical organization known to modern man. I am glad the RCC lost their case in the supreme court. Hopefully it will rattle some common sense into them by making them end their discriminatory attitudes towards gay Americans. I am so thankful that I am no longer a Roman Catholic.

    THAT, we can agree on. Rattling common sense into them? I highly doubt that.
