    While the Vatican synod dealt mostly with marriage and family, with divorced Catholics being one of the hot topics of the assembly, it did touch on gay marriage, which most of the world seems to be accepting. A New York Times report I read stated: "The bishops drew a hard line against ANY (my capitals, not the reporter's) acceptance of same-sex marriage, saying that it is not 'even remotely analogous' to marriage between a man and a woman."

    Same old, same old. When it comes to gay rights, the RC Church might as well be some Islamist sect. The talk may be more nuanced, but the underlying attitude is the same: Gay = bad.

    Well, at least they don't burn us alive anymore, or stick glowing red pokers up our ass, 2 things that used to be officially sanctioned. Maybe in another 1000 years they'll leave us alone entirely. Or, if the Conservatives in the Church have their way, return to those practices.

    Gay priest decries 'inhuman' treatment of homosexual Catholics

    A senior priest in the Vatican who was stripped of his post after coming out as gay has launched a scathing attack on the Roman Catholic Church.

    In a letter to Pope Francis this month, Krzysztof Charamsa accused the Church of making the lives of millions of gay Catholics globally "a hell".

    He criticised what he called the Vatican's hypocrisy in banning gay priests, even though he said the clergy was "full of homosexuals".

    Pope Francis has yet to respond.

    It's just been recently that they admitted Galileo was right. Give it a few more millennia and maybe they'll admit they were also wrong on gay rights.
