    WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:

    Officially recognize the Roman Catholic Church as a hate group.

    In his annual Christmas address to the College of Cardinals, Pope Benedict XVI, the global leader of the Roman Catholic Church, demeaned and belittled homosexual people around the world. Using hateful language and discriminatory remarks, the Pope painted a portrait in which gay people are second-class global citizens. Pope Benedict said that gay people starting families are threatening to society, and that gay parents objectify and take away the dignity of children. The Pope also implied that gay families are sub-human, as they are not dignified in the eyes of God.

    Upon these remarks, the Roman Catholic Church fits the definition of a hate group as defined by both the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League.

    Created: Dec 25, 2012

    nlightn saidObama won't sleep until he has driven each and every gay and lesbian into the ground. Dont believe a word this lier says. He is lieing lieing lieing every time he opens his big black panther lips.

    Further more, the catholic church is the biggest hoax/cult in the world and descrimates against gays too. Its no secret if you're only bi and not full gay, you will be favored.

    ". Dont believe a word this lier says. He is lieing lieing lieing every time he opens his big black panther lips."

    Dear Urrrrllll,

    I don't want to question your genius credentials but the word you are trying to spell is "LYING" not "lieing".

    Additionally, Urrrrllll, I'd caution you that because you are an older, considerably OLDER white guy, you are probably ill-advised to use the term "BIG BLACK PANTHER LIPS" in reference to our current president. CLUE: it seems a little bit racist.

    Back to your primary point that OUR PRESIDENT OBAMA, THE FIRST PRESIDENT TO WIN A 51+% MAJORITY OF THE VOTE IN TWO ELECTIONS SINCE PRESIDENT EISENHOWER,

    and you know, THE PRESIDENT WHO OVERTURNED DADT against the locked-arm assholery of the Republican Party of Homophobes,

    is widely seen by both Gays and OLD WHITE RACISTS as having been very good for the gay community. The Gays are happy and the OLLLLLLDDDD WHITE RACISTS are pissed.

    But at least they both agree, PRESIDENT OBAMA has been beneficial for all of us who identify as gay.

    Nice rebuttal GeorgeLifts

    But back to the thread - I can't see where this is getting the RC Church. I can only assume it's playing well to a particular part (that'll be the reactionary part) of the gallery. If Karl Rove could use DADT as a wedge issue, I suppose Benedict XVIII can take a similar tack - sigh.

    Would never, ever happen, ever.

    You know who is overwhelmingly catholic? Hispanics... Not to mention the huge volume of blue collar whites.

    Electoral math is a bitch. Their votes matter more than yours.

    Catholicism is about God, not the Pope. Trying to go for the whole church instead of making this specifically about Pope Benedict XVI doesn't make much sense.

    There are millions of Catholics out there that love homosexuals. There are many Catholic Priests, Bishops, ect...that love every single person and will never judge them. The Pope is speaking for himself. The Pope is a FORMER NAZI. The Catholic people are not allowed to vote for who becomes Pope.

    The Pope is a hateful sinful man like many other Popes before him. It's not the Religion.

    I don't know why gay guys think The Prez is pro gay. He pulls the party line on this issue begrudgingly.

    Try flying through Saudi Arabia and declare at security that you are a homosexual and you will experience true hate. Do the same as you enter the Vatican. Let us know what happens.

    Not to get off the subject..but the electoral method should be obolished. It had its purpose, but now with our ability to process data, only popular votes should be counted.

    This of course isnt going to happen, but it would be an enabler....getting folks to think their vote would matter. Not just the swing states...every popular vote would count.

    Some of my best friends are Catholics. Don't think this is constructive.

    Like any group, when one individual is out of line, criticize the individual. Don't bash the whole group.

    Who care what the poop says? Catholics and that's about it, and they're a dying breed anyway. It's straight parents who give birth and raise gay children regardless, and what dignity will gay parents be taking away by adopting a child who's (straight) parents were too irresponsible to raise them properly? Morons.

    The petition in itself is pointless to me, since I already find the catholic church irrelevant in my life.

    Oh and we need to stop relying on Obama. He's not one to trust.

    I know plenty of Catholics who disagree and are very supportive of gays and they do A LOT of good for people too. Sure there are some flaws. But if a house has a fault roof, you work on fixing the roof, you don't label the entire neighborhood a hazard and raze all the homes to the ground. That's what this petition does.

    The Catholic Church will likely evolve over time just like most groups.

    I've been to a Catholic service once, it seem so satanic and scripted. It was like I was entering the gates of hell. IMO

    You yanks should focus on getting the Nation of Islam classified as a hate group before you go after the catholics
