    It would appear that Roman Catholic Cardinal Dolan of New York is a total homophobe.

    His homophobia is not news, agreed. But the most recent fallout of it is.

    He is clearly lining himself up in the running for next Bigot-in-Chief, as the current one is looking very shaky.

    It would appear that the wrong religious man resigned.

    Well Dolan's anti-gay credentials are now very strongly established, and that's a big plus in the Roman Catholic Church. And there's never been a US Pope, so maybe that'll also be in his favor.

    On the downside, however, he's not an ex-Nazi, so his anti-democratic Fascist tendencies are unproven. That may disqualify him with the other Cardinals. But clearly with his high-profile anti-gay and anti-women prejudices he's maneuvering to put himself into contention for being the next Pope.

    Der Panzerkardinal (Benedict XVI) and his predecessor from Poland are the only non-Italian cardinals to be seated on the Papal throne in over 400 years.

    Most likely the next pope will be Italian - and the chances of an American cardinal being considered are nothing short of astronomically slim.

    I'm sorry the OP turns a blind eye to his very own homophobic past, as it's not pretty, and the truth is not always nice; yet is happy to focus on an other's, and attack and drag them down for their actions. I myself may of been able to of over looked that abuse, but I have also had to endure this bisexual try too repress I, a Bona Fide homosexual on gay issues, when I have lived my whole life from the age of 5 as an out homosexual, Born in homophobic rural Australia in the 1960s; now that took balls, something many men born in the 1940s and 50s did not have; yet I was only 5. I who stood by the gay community in it's darkest years, when it was put on it's knees from so much death from AIDS, and all the hate we also had to endure from the world too as being something dirty and infectious. When the OP stood by as a straight family man doing nothing to help us. How they must now hang their heads in shame.

    How is his sins any better than those he now promotes so much hate and contempt for, just because he may now wave a bloody flag, and has made the lifestyle choice to have a boyfriend instead of another wife?

    I myself behold no love for the Catholic Church, as they were among those who helped and promote my torture as a wee child for not standing down as a homosexual child, and Turing a blind eye to those who did abuse and torture me; just because my protestant father was forced to marry a Catholic, and hand all his children over to them. But still my heart is not full of hate towards religion; I just thank God our Head of State in Oz is, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

    Yet I also have too just look at all the hate I have endured here at RJ from the gay left for not swimming with their flow, as even a dead fish can do that. But my sexuality does not define me as a whole. Nor the way I vote or live my life, nor am I self loathing. Now I have stood stead fast for 45 years to do that.

    I'm sure if the Gay Plague Era never come along and I did not see so much death and murder that I did from a community I stood by when so many did not, The man I am today may well be diffrent, as I would not of been forced to give up my gay card and too go back out into the real world and live the rest of my life as an out homosexual, in a straight world. But it has made me stronger, and I do not see my self as a victom, yet knowledge I am a target of hate from the gay and bi left, because I am one and have the balls to do so and too stand alone. yet I am also loved and respected out here in the real world, and seen as one of the good guys, as actions speak louder than words.

    Are you speaking of the current pontiff, Palpatine I?

    Apparently the only true homosexual man in all of Australia equates being in denial to being a homophobe. He spouts that nonsense about me all the time (And not even allowing that my alleged homophobia might be pretty! I mean really! I am SO offended! icon_evil.gif ), with no facts or evidence to support his "truth". But fortunately I have him blocked and only see his lunacy when someone else quotes him.

    Hint Mark: don't quote him in my threads! No one takes him seriously anyway.

    Dolan apparently has the "credentials" to be the next pope, but it seems unlikely. The cardinals are primarily European, and they prefer someone from there. Dolan wouldn't be much of an improvement over the current pope, so it's just as well he doesn't get the position. But unfortunately he will continue to do his damage here.
