    "The ruling allows O'Brien to remain a priest and keep the formal title of cardinal, but he is no longer be allowed to help elect a future pope or advise the current head of the Catholic Church."

    Another anti-gay conservative who turns out to be a repressed homosexual with mental problems. Are all conservatives secretly gay? That's what most people are starting to think.
    The media will eventually stop covering these, because they're getting so common they're not newsworthy.

    Not sure why he deserves this. He should be busted to plain old 'Mr O'Brien'.

    It seems unlikely that all, or even most, conservatives are secretly gay. However, it does provide ample reason to suspect that conservatives often are not what they seem to be. This is nothing new.

    From HMS Pinafore:

    Buttercup.
    Things are seldom what they seem,
    Skim milk masquerades as cream;
    Highlows pass as patent leathers;
    Jackdaws strut in peacock's feathers.

    Captain. (puzzled)
    Very true,
    So they do.

    Buttercup.
    Black sheep dwell in every fold;
    All that glitters is not gold;
    Storks turn out to be but logs;
    Bulls are but inflated frogs.

    Captain. (puzzled)
    So they be,
    Frequentlee.

    Buttercup.
    Drops the wind and stops the mill;
    Turbot is ambitious brill;
    Gild the farthing if you will,
    Yet it is a farthing still.

    There are plenty of people who fall for preachers like Creflo Dollar. He certainly is well named.
